"My character was supposed to behave larger than life like a south Indian commercial hero. I was supposed to dance with the heroine. I was scared on the first day of the shoot.

"Normally I don't see the monitor after giving the shots, but later when I checked one of the scenes, I was surprised to see how I managed to pull these shots dancing with the heroine in a swimming pool."
