I also believe that it wasn’t the best time to come up with an album because the music culture in India was undergoing a change. Now, the industry is open for non-film music.

I like to get in someone else’s shoes. I don’t want a lot of money or popularity. So my interest in acting has nothing to do with commercial benefits.

I won't say everything came the way I imagined. You have to struggle. Post Indian Idol, I was doing a lot of reality shows. I had to keep my self going because getting a break is not easy. Luckily my fans and work kept me going.

I've sung for almost all music directors in the industry but I would love to work with AR Rahman as I've never sung for him before.

I’m happy people recognise my voice instantly. But, frankly, I feel I’ve been doing too many things at once. Music is my only focus now

Independent music and film music are like test cricket and T20. Both have their own charm, though there’s a real need to re-look at indie-music and produce quality like that of Bombay Viking and Lucky Ali. Singles and digital platforms are doing their bit to revive this, but we have some time to go there.

I was born and brought up in Nainital where I stayed till my graduation. Nainital had a very colonial hangover back then. People would stroll the mall road for evening constitutional. I am not sure whether that exists now or not. But it was an amazing place to meet people.

As destiny would have it, one of the actors did not turn up that day. Randomly, the director asked me if I could read the part and be his proxy. I remember, the play was titled ‘Naatak Jaari Hai’ and was based on three plays by Bhartendu Harishchandra viz. ‘Andher Nagri’, ‘Vaidiki Hinsa Hinsa na Bhawati’ and ‘Bharat Durdasha’. I read the lines and the director quite liked it. And he asked me to join.

The most important thing about the NSD training was that it opened up world literature, world theatre and its acting styles in front of me. The kind of exposure that the theatre school gives is absolutely brilliant. But what it really does is to present a platter in front of you. After that it is purely individual stride as to what to take and what not to. It has more to do with your personal attitude. But that exposure to the possible genres and styles was important and it helped a lot.

When I came to Bombay, the economic capital of India, and the film city, if you are doing theatre, you can't survive, so you have to earn your bread and butter from somewhere. So I freelance a little bit in television and a little bit in film, but my main focus is on theatre. So I am doing theatre continuously. I never take a regular job in television or film because my theatre will suffer.

For me, Bombay is very vibrant right now, many kinds of theatre in many languages are happening. There is Gujarati theatre, which is commercially viable. There is Marathi theatre, which is sort of experimental and commercial. We have English theatre, we have Hindi theatre. Because I live in Mumbai I can see it is very vibrant and very many new ideas, new styles and languages.

Totally. Totally because I thought this is going to be relatively easy. It was really hard because everything I learned, I learned by doing it or hanging out with musicians and just doing it. And, suddenly, I had to go and articulate something that was instinctive [or] just learned, you know, to have a periphery of my vision, or whatever. I had to go put it into a book and be clear about it.

It’s interesting how you’re talking about time, ’cause one of the things which I keep thinking, and it sort of irks me because I don’t think people are aware of it, if you take the three Batman movies I did with Chris Nolan, it’s three movies to people, but to us, it was 12 years of our life.

Going for Gold? I’m not ashamed of it! It paid the rent and opened up all sorts of doors. I will admit to it: we all have to have our guilty little somethings!

I know Les Dawson. Come on, I'm not completely ignorant.
