Even if someone from India goes to work there, someone or the other will make noise.” “Art is something that travels across all borders. Art knows no culture and creed. As an actor, I would like to explore myself. I do feel bad, but I choose to ignore criticism. I think to pay attention to it is unnecessary,” he added. Spoke like a wise!

It is a timeless classic but our film is different. Rakesh Roshan played the role of a doctor and I play a Rajput prince, so it’s different in a way,” he said. While Sonam Kapoor, who has stepped into Bollywood’s queen of seduction Rekha’s shoes for the Khoobsurat remake. She says she is not even a small patch on the senior actor who is still known for effortlessly and elegantly playing the carefree, bubbly and chirpy girl in the original film. “I don’t think I can do justice to anything Rekha has done,” said Sonam Kapoor.
