In one of his interviews with india.com, the actor pulled out a leaf from his life before stardom, when he would do live theatre performances, and narrated a hilarious incident. "It was a play based on Mahabharata and I was playing Arjun. There was a crucial part where the warrior is cursed by an apsara Urvashi to live like a woman for one year."

Divulging further about the interesting character, he said, "I had to act like Arjun and then turn into this other avatar which is of a man in a woman's body. To get it perfect, I used to practice walking and talking like a woman and get the mannerisms right while wearing the attire (ghagra-choli). By the end of it, without even realising, I sometimes used to walk and talk in a certain way for people around me to mistake me as gay. I also had a few men try to get over-friendly. But then I spoke to them and cleared the doubts."
