In an interview with reporters, the actor said, “I want to own this space. I started like that and I have that in me as an actor. I would love to act in such subjects (like that of a sperm donor, erectile dysfunction). It is important to have your own space as an actor,” he said.

“At the same time, I have to shift gears like I am doing a thriller film with Sriram Raghavan, it is an exciting genre for me. I am happy in this kind of space and I will continue to choose films that are interesting,” he mentioned.
