Talking about it, he said: “In today’s time, I think most of these boys have forgotten what heroism is and what commercial and mass cinema is all about which I think there’s nothing to get scared of in working opposite each other. If you don’t, then how do you learn? I worked with the biggest actors and the most senior actors as I was growing and I did only one thing was learn from them- Amit Ji (Amitabh Bachchan), Chintu sir (Rishi Kapoor) from everybody. If you don’t work with other actors how do you learn? Don’t forget commercial cinema don’t get insecure, be open and you’ll score man.
