Excerpts from his interview

Q: Why did you choose to do 100?
A: Every actor would love to do a cop thriller. I was thrilled when Sam Anton narrated an engaging script. It has a serious premise and lots of elements that will engross the audience. It is about those officers in the control room, whom we reach in times of distress by dialing 100.

Q: On sharing the screen with Hansika…
A: She is a wonderful co-star. A bundle of energy. I was comfortable working with her. She has done her role perfectly.

Q: How difficult it was to don khakhi?
A: It was a challenge. An actor can do such roles only if he is convinced that he can pull it off. I thank my director for giving me the confidence. From body language to dialogue delivery, everything was comfortable once I felt at ease wearing the police uniform. I had to keep myself fit to get my act right.

Q: How do you take success and failures?
A: I give my best for each and every film. My commitment remains the same. The verdict is not in my hands. In case of a failure, I just learn my lessons being part of the project and put them to good use in my subsequent films.
