At the recently held song launch of JAGGA JASOOS, when asked how he reacts to compliments from Aamir and Paresh Rawal, he said, “Thank you Aamir sir and Paresh sir. These guys are stalwarts of the industry. Have learnt a lot from them and from their movies. I think his (Aamir Khan) love for me is very deep and I really appreciate that. The fact that he loves my work is sone pe suhaaga. I just hope I can live up to his expectations?”
Further adding to it he said, “I hope I don't let you down. Aamir sir has been very sweet and supportive to me in my entire career. I remember when BOMBAY VELVET had flopped, Aamir sir was traveling, he came straight to my house, sat with me the entire night and discussed acting, film industry, hits and flops. I feel extremely blessed and grateful. Last couple of years weren’t really good for me at the box office. But still, to have a film with Anurag Basu, Rajkumar Hirani and Ayan Mukerji, I feel safe and I feel they are gifting their vision to me. I really hope that I can repay that with my talent and good performances. So I am really excited about my lineup of films.”
Directed by Anurag Basu, JAGGA JASOOS also stars Katrina Kaif and is slated to release on July 14.
