Your web series is titled Boss - Baap of Special Services. What are the special services you are a master of?

The character that I am playing in Boss – Baap of Special Services is very shrewd. He is a great lover also. In real life, I do not think that I am very shrewd. Maybe a wee bit I am. I am a great lover, of course. I am not a master of anything. But you never know. Maybe if I practise a lot, I will become the master of at least something.

How much hard work did you put in to get into your character in the series?

Not very much! But yes, my director Ankush Bhatt had given me two examples to prepare my character. I saw them. Then I created a back story to my character. That is something which I do for every role that I take up. Other than that, I gave everything that I had as a performer. It is a fun role and a fun show. It was a fun team to work with. The writer has written the story very well.

You started your career with television and then ventured into movies. Now, you are exploring the digital medium as well. How different is the web-space for you as an actor?

The best thing about the web-space is that there is no limitation for the audience now. They can watch digital content on their device and that too at whatever time that suits them the best. They can consume everything on their device now. So, I feel that is a good thing.

You have worked a lot with producer Ekta Kapoor. Boss - Baap of Special Services is also her venture. Recently, we saw your video shot in Switzerland where everybody was teasing you, including her. How is your rapport with her?

No, they were not teasing me. She (Ekta Kapoor) is a child, so she does not understand what she says at times. Other than that, she is a gift to the entertainment industry, you know. She has been entertaining the entire nation for so many years now. She understands the audience quite well. She understands people really well. Her thought process is multi-dimensional. She can multi-task and understand so many things at the same time. She is a very special person. It is a pleasure to be working with her. At times, she says things unintentionally, which you saw in the video. That’s it.

It is time for some rapid-fire questions. Tell us what did you want to become when you were a kid?

I wanted to be Superman, but I was unable to find out that red underwear to wear on my pants (laughs).

Are you a messy person?

I am a clean person, but I do make a mess. But I also clean it. I actually make less of a mess now.

Are you an extrovert or an introvert?

I am a mix of both actually.

What makes you weird?

I talk to myself.

Who was your childhood crush?

Mine were many. Cindy Crawford was one of them.

Do you have any phobia?

I do not have any phobia now. I used to have once. I was scared of heights.

If you get the power to turn invisible for one day, what would you do?

I would like to do painting on the terrace. I would also like to do the workout, but since my body would not be visible, there is no use of that. I would also go for swimming and scare people.

Describe yourself in three words.

Strong, willful and funny.

Do you have any message for your fans that are waiting for your web-series Boss – Baap of Special Services with bated breath?

I just want to say that you guys are going to enjoy it. It is a lot of fun and no character is invisible there (laughs).

Directed by Ankush Bhatt, Boss - Baap of Special Services is scheduled to start streaming on 2nd August on ALTBalaji.
