I am in love and I won’t hide it.
I think its important to have the looks to some extent but its what’s inside you which people get to see and that’s what makes someone popular or unpopular. So I think it’s not the looks in my case but it’s my work as an artist, which has earned me the respect of the people at large.
My physique is all wrong. I’d like to change everything about my looks.
I’ve never had a decent haircut except the short one I’m sporting right now for “Lakshya”.
