“Honestly, it was actually quite an emotional decision. Somebody recently asked me whether I have become too secure, and not worried about sharing screen space with so many others. I just want to say that I am still in the initial stage of my career. And I would be very much concerned about these things when I do my next fiction show. However, State of Siege, as I told you, has a connect with every one of us. I was in the UK studying when the attacks happened, and I felt so much rage and angst against these terrorists. They were young kids, juvenile minds and maybe didn’t even understand what they did. So when the makers called me, I didn’t even discuss much and said an instant yes as I was emotionally drawn towards it,” said the Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actor.

Talking about his choice and career moves, he added, “It’s not that I had pre-planned but it appealed to me the moment I read the script. Also, I will be honest, I don’t even have too much screen space in the show. If I had calculated it as a career move, it would have been a disaster (laughs). What really mattered to me was that I wanted to be a part of the project, that somewhere affected every Indian.” Also Read - Divyanka Tripathi And Vivek Dahiya React to Pregnancy Rumours, Latter Says 'That's Not an Edit, It's The Truth'
