    Q Share your memories with Dev Anand?
    I am lucky that I am his last find, I always liked his black and white posters since childhood. Every moment I spent with Dev saab was a golden moment. It was so inspiring for me that I was with industry's living legend who is so simple and yet super stylish. Also, I had a privilege to hear my favourite dialogues from Guide.
    He was a great philosopher. What an intellectual treat it was to listen to his words, philosophy, logistics and experiences. We used to wander holding hands and singing songs - Mein zindagi ka saath nibhata chala gaya. He was a very jolly person. He used to crack jokes. I never heard him yelling at someone he always used to smile from his eyes.
    Q Tell us about your first meeting with the actor.
    I met him first at his pent house at Pali Hill, Mumbai when I was on the way I thought Dev Saab has launched so many beautiful faces how will I impress him besides beauty. I decided to recite one Hindi poetry written by me. He was so impressed that he offered me to write songs for the movie. Then he called me on my birthday, wished me and asked me for a photoshoot with him. On the day of shoot he brought beautiful colorful flowers for me. He offered me the lead role in his last film Chargesheet and I was on cloud nine. I was a part of the film right from the music sittings till the release and thus got a long time to learn from the legendary actor.
    Q How was he as an actor and director?
    As the world knows he was a brilliant actor and a master director. As director he used to make artists so comfortable that everybody used to give his best. He was very particular about what he wants and what he doesn't. As an actor he used to say – “Whatever character you are playing you should be into it, feel it and let it come so naturally that it looks effortless.” He would also say forget about make-up, costumes and just perform naturally. One more tip I remember is that he asked me to not to follow others and make my own style instead.
    Q What are the things you learned from him?
    I learnt three things from him – no matter how a big star you are, you have to be humble; age is just a number and the third thing being work is worship.
    One day I asked Dev saab about the beauty of my favourite actress Madhubala. He told me, “Jawani khoobsoorat hi hoti hai. Madhubala bhi thi, tum bhi ho. One should just value their uniqueness such that no one matches you.”
    Q What were his habits and special things you noticed about him?
    He was well dressed and a style icon. I have never seen him without shoes and proper get up. He was also very particular about his diet. He used to eat very less and at fixed time. He used to do breathing exercises. He was so energetic and active like an 18 year old boy trying to make his first film. He was a gentleman and well mannered. He was an unforgettable personality.
    Q It was in news that he wanted you to be a part of his family as bride. Your comment.
    That's true. One day he asked me would I like to come to his house. I said sure I would love to go. Then he said not for once but forever. I had no clue about what he was trying to say. Then he asked me, “Do you like Sunil (his son)?”
    Q Your favorite Dev Anand's film?
    Guide is my favorite!
    Q What are the things that would make him happy or angry?
    Work used to make him happy. Film making was his ultimate happiness and acting was his soul. We used to watch his old films while going to Mahabaleshwar for our movie Chargesheet’s shoot. His work was his passion and his passion was his happiness. I never saw him angry.
    Q What are you busy with these days?
    I worked with another legend, actor Mohanlal and my favourite director Priyadarhsan in the film Oppam. The film has broken all records at the box office and is running successful all over the world. My last film Khel Toh Ab Shuru Hoga also worked well. This year hopefully my three to four films will be releasing. Apart from acting I will be doing rap in a song very soon.
