Because of which Delhi is known, you have come to Delhi in that season, so how is the winter of Delhi? What else to love about Delhi?
Although Delhi’s winter is famous, but I am not feeling cold right now. Before coming to Delhi, I was told that it would be very cold in Delhi, but I did not feel it, maybe after my arrival the weather is fine. By the way, the winter of Delhi has its own fun. Apart from winter, Delhi’s food is very much liked. The paranthas and potato chaat here are something else. If we talk about street food, then you can enjoy it only in Delhi in the whole country. When we come from Mumbai, the biggest curiosity is about what to eat. I have just come to Delhi, so a plan will be made as to where to go, what to eat. Will go with friends now, I think we will go to Bengali market first, after that he was saying to give some surprise, so let’s see what is going to happen.
You started your career with a negative role, then you appeared in the role of a hero, which of these two sides do you find more difficult to be and why?
Whether you play a negative role or a hero, both are acting bases. In any situation, you have to act. As an actor, both are very challenging and both are fun to do. It is difficult while doing both, but it is a lot of fun to do both the characters.
Nowadays there is talk of Movie Universe films. You are a big action star, how do you feel about being a part of your own movie universe? Do you think Bollywood makers will be able to live up to this concept?
Well, I think the people who are talking about the Movie Universe, they are the right people who are talking about the right things. Now the time has come that the more the actors work together, the more the audience will enjoy. Every star has fan following. So, when the fans see all the stars together on one screen, they definitely enjoy it. This tradition was going on in Hollywood. I am very happy that the directors who are working on Movie Universe in the Indian film industry, their result will be good going forward. Everyone likes to be a part of a good cause. So I would also like to be a part of a movie universe. Every star wants to work in such projects and give their best.
In which projects will your fans be able to see you in the coming days?
One of my upcoming films is IB71. This is going to be the first film on Secret Service Bureau of India. My own company is producing this film. Apart from that, I have another film coming up called Krack. This is a film on Streams Sports. In which you will get to see a different kind of action. Both these films will come this year.
You are the idol of youngsters in terms of fitness, but in the past many stars have had health problems, some of them died of heart attacks. In such a situation, you yourself are known for fitness, so how worrying do you find it? What advice would you like to give to gym goers?
I think it has nothing to do with fitness. Accident can happen to anyone. Such cases have been coming to the fore not only in our film industry but also outside the country. Many people often tell me that doing too much exercise is harmful. I think these are things of ignorance. What you eat and how you are using the nutrients are more important. For example, youths hire a trainer, so there should be complete research on it, the trainer should have complete education to give training. Nowadays anyone becomes a trainer without any certificate. How many years of training he has taken and how much he knows about food, if you know this, then I don’t think there will be any bad effect on your health. Exercising is very important. The biggest question is the trainer, and the diet he is giving you is important.
You are better known as an action hero. You have had action films one after the other. Don’t you think your stereotype image is being created? Is this your choice or comfort zone?
I do Hindustani martial arts. I am known for this art in the country and abroad. I consider it my good fortune to perform this art form. I think if you are promoting Hindustani martial arts and you get stereotyped for that, then I think you are doing what you are known for and you are doing well or getting praised. should remain. It’s a pleasure to hear appreciation for something you do and are known for. Many people get inspired by you. It’s a good thing for me to be stereotyped like that. But yes I am thinking of doing something different. Whatever I have done till now, I think of doing better work. I think of improving what has never been seen before. There is no height limit. Still more work is needed in this area. As long as it is happening, we will do it, when it is not possible, we will think about something.
What do you have to say about the discussions that are happening these days regarding Bollywood and South films?
‘My father was in the army. When he was posted in the North East, be it the Chennai Regiment or the Bihar Regiment, when there is a war on the border in Kashmir, whether it is a South or North regiment, they all fight together for the country. Where I come from, it is a military background, so whether it is a good film from North or South, for me it is an Indian film. We are Indians, I take pride in every film. I have also worked in South. If anyone makes progress for me, I am very happy.
Nowadays everyone is turning towards OTT. What do you have to say about OTT?
Are you also planning for any web series? I find OTT a good platform. I had many friends who were good actors, good writers and directors, but they didn’t have work. After the arrival of OTT, he got work. So OTT is the future. As far as my web series is concerned, ideas keep coming, we are also talking about it. Let’s see what will happen in the coming days. Will do something this year.
