He’s bridged the cultural art gap amongst two nations through his performance as an actor and newly, also a producer. The hunk had just landed in Mumbai from Dubai, and despite a busy schedule for the day, he happily accommodated a quick and delightful conversation with Gayatri Nirmal.

Kaale Coatwala Khiladi!

For the longest period of time, we’ve all known him for his fitness, discipline and his daredevil stunts. Afraid of being stereotyped, he later swam to another genre, and naïvely jumped in the well of comedy.

He hosts a plethora of talent and has mastered the art of making people laugh hilariously. Carrying the humour sword through his film jolly llb 2, he stayed true to his character.
