You’ve been in Bollywood for only four years. Why did you decide to write a book?

It was my dad’s idea, an author himself, and I accepted it because I realised there was a lot I wanted to tell about my journey to Bollywood.

Your book starts with, ‘If you’re lazy, easily bored or have time to kill, read on....’

Yes! I don’t think I can be a guru to quick success in Bollywood. It is about my journey, mistakes and corrections.

Your wife has co-written the book....

Yes, I needed all the help I could get, and her being a journalist and author helped.

Many stars have written on Bollywood. How is yours different?

Cracking the Code is about my journey to Bollywood and serves as a guide to anyone with the same dreams.

Anchor, actor, singer and now writer—master of all?

As a theatre actor, we had to do all of these things, it's from there I get the urge to do these.

You’ve done four movies, three of which didn’t do well.

I have taken all my failures as a learning lesson. I don’t hold on to either success or failure.

You have done best and had most success as a singer. Is that your love?

I think I’m best at acting!

How do you choose your films?

When I connect with the character I am to play.

Do you think your next movie Dum Laga Ke Haisha will do better?

It’s safer in terms of the budget and has a unique story. So, perhaps.

Will the next book be on your journey ‘in’ Bollywood?

I haven’t the slightest idea if I’d have a ‘in’ story to tell!
