Can anybody make music?
Yes, absolutely. I think anybody can make music if you do it with your heart. I started loving music since I was a kid. Both my mom (Madhu Chopra) and dad (Ashok Chopra) were very fond of music. So they too influenced me while I was growing up. Slowly I started making tunes in my head.
Will you sing for any of your contemporary actresses given a chance?
I think it will be really cool if I can sing for some other actress now, because I am a singer too professionally. But my voice is very distinct, so I think it will be too much of a disparity. However, it doesn't depend on actors but songs. I love to sing. So if there is a good song, I can sing for any of my contemporary actresses.
How will you describe yourself as a person?
I am both confident and shy.
Do you ever feel jealous?
I am not a jealous kind of a person. I may have admired other people's style. If somebody dresses up well, I may turn around and say: "Wow, that's great!" May be I will also try to stitch up things in a similar way. But I don't get jealous because I like myself, I am okay with who I am.
What are your expectations from your upcoming film Krrish 3?
Krrish is such a franchise where I have been a part of two of its three films (Koi... Mil Gaya, Krrish and Krrish 3). It's something kids love, a film which you can go and see with your families. Now-a-days we have very few films which we can go and watch with our in-laws, grandparents ... entire family. It's Diwali time. So I really hope the film will do well. As a team we are very excited about it and promoting it in every way that we can.
Given a chance, will you act in a Hollywood film?
I don't make plans. Even my music was not a plan. I consider myself as an actor. As long as it's a fun part it does not matter whether the film is being made in Hindi, English, Punjabi or Tamil. I don't keep telling myself that I will have to go to Hollywood and get famous there.
What are your priorities at present?
Right now, I am focusing on my music and my movies. Wherever my music and movies take me, I will go there.
What is your style statement?
Style is the reflection of a person's personality. I like a lot of structured clothes. I like stuffs that accentuate my body and colours that bring up my complexion. However, primarily I look for comfort. On day-to-day basis, I am a jeans and T-shirt person.
Were you always conscious about how you look?
No. I became more conscious about what I wear and how I look after becoming an actor. However, I always loved to look nice and pretty.
