He seduced a few generations of women with his eyes, his voice and the aristocratic cool he exuded in Khoobsurat. Manju Ramanan spoke to the latest Khan on the block.
What was the best thing about Khoobsurat apart from your role and Sonam Kapoor?
I loved the flashy vintage sports cars. I worked with a great team of designers who fashioned out my character and yes, I got to wear some great clothes.
Are you a romantic in real life too?
I am hopelessly romantic though in the film I did get to play a small part of me – though he is a man of few words, is disapproving of a lot of things and is very disciplined.
What is your sun sign ?
I am a Saggitarian and born on November 29th, 1981.
You have lived in Dubai?
Yes for a few years – when I was 4-5 years old. I did my schooling in Dubai Scholars.
What do you remember about Dubai?
I remember this class bully who bit me on the arm over a packet of chips. I still have relatives and family members here. I also performed in Dubai between 2005-2008 when I was part of this music band.
