People who are much more talented than me, much more good-looking than me and have a better body than me. But they don’t make it (become actors) here and I have made it here. It’s a big thing for me.”

If actors do well, they have a very good life and because both my parents (Aditya Pancholi, Zarina Wahab) are actors. When I assisted on the sets, I knew that I could do it as I didn’t study a lot. I feel it’s (acting) in my blood. I’ve been watching Hindi films since I was a child .And my mother wanted me to become an actor when I turned 20-21.”
