Reportedly, speaking about his transition from being an actor to a director, he revealed that the change has been tremendous, and although his career started 10 years ago, and ta that time one was still shooting a movie on celluloid, and the notion of digital media was still a distant dream. He further stated that given the age of digital media these days, one is reaching out to viewers across the globe and the kind of stories that are being told these days are also different. However, when asked about his plans of returning to acting, he stated that he is not particularly excited about acting, and is more thrilled to be in the driver's seat where he can decide what is happening on set. 

The actor seems to be hopeful about directing, but talking about his future projects, he revealed that the next thing is something that even he is not aware of. The actor made a debut with the blockbuster film ' Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na', that also fetched him a Filmfare Award, and is enjoyed by the audience dearly till date.
