Was this a sudden decision or have you been thinking about acting for a long time?

Since Ayesha was already into films, I had been thinking about this for a long time. But now I have been thinking more seriously and have decided to take the plunge.

What kind of scripts are you looking at?

Actually, I have not looked at any. I am working on myself and improving my skills. I will wait until something nice comes along.

Will you go for glamour roles?

Definitely.

Ayesha maintained a very strict no-kissing and no exposing rule. Will you implement the same?

I am fortunate to learn from her but I am my own individual. It depends on the script. If I like the script, then I will see.

Quite a few Bollywood heroines are acting in Southern language films. Would you sign up too, if you got any interesting offers if you get an offer in South?

Actually I did get an offer for a South Indian film earlier when I was not interested in acting. If I get such an offer and I like the story, I will do a south film. Acting in different languages is not a problem.

Your mother always accompanies Ayesha on the sets of her shoots. Will she do the same with you?

Ayesha was always the baby of the family. She is used to a lot of pampering. All of us pamper her. She is so sweet. I am hoping that mom will find time to come with me on the sets until I am comfortable.

You are supposed to be very internet savvy. How many hours do you spend on the net?

I used to spend a lot of time on the net earlier. But it's a lot less now. I spend enough time to know what is going on. I have a lot of friends online. In fact, I twitter all day.

Dancing is so important in Bollywood films. Have you learnt to dance?

I had visited Ayesha's sets recently, and everyone was saying the same thing. I am looking forward to learning dance. I have to find the right teacher and learn different forms.

You were always interested in music. Do you sing or play any instrument?

I am interested in singing. I know how to play the guitar.

What kind of music do you like?

All kinds of electronic music -- classic, rock, hip hop, anything that is fun and danceable. Remixes are fun. They even make old slow songs danceable.
