“To be frank, I stumbled on the role; I was just at the right place at the right time when I got the role in the movie."

"The part was not supposed to be mine. When I knew I was to do the fire scene, I was excited because I was already tired of acting in romantic dramas."

"We do the same thing over and over again. I needed something challenging. I wanted to do something new and this was something refreshing."

"The make-up artiste had assured me that what she would do for me would work and it took months before we shot that scene."

"We had actually shot the major part of the movie earlier in the year but recently did the fire scene."

"The make-up artiste did a lot of research with practitioners in Hollywood to get the job done. So I had a lot of faith in her”, he said.
