In an interview on TV show 'Yeh Hai Meri Kahani', he discussed various aspects of his life, beginning with the pressure of coming from an illustrious film family, his education, which was a big deal for his family, and his studying acting and more.
"If I failed as an actor, I will take up direction or produce films but I will do something around the film industry. This is when I told my father that I would want to go to an acting institute and train myself," the "Barfi!" star said in a statement.
He learnt acting from the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York.
The interview will be aired on Saturday on UTV Stars.
