Recently, Free Press Journal caught up with the Paresh Pahuja and spoke about his debut with Salman and Katrina, his future plans, and his dream job and much more!
Q. After the big bang debut with Tiger Zinda Hai, what is your future plan?
A. “The immediate plan is to win a Filmfare award! Two reasons for that. One, it’s been a dream ever since I decided to be an actor. So much so that my Filmfare speech is ready for last 3 years.”
Further he added, “It opens up a lot of new doors. You get to meet almost entire industry under one roof. From dream directors, productions to dream co-actors and everyone in between. Long term plan is to change the world by good one film at a time.”
Q. Want to give any message to Salman or Katrina?
A. Message to Salman Sir– There’s no way I can thank you enough for every little thing you’ve done knowingly or unknowingly. Be it giving me a cup of coffee when I was shivering in the underwater scene, staying back to give me cues even when your shot was over or just asking if I’m eating well. More than anything else, you’ve taught me the most precious lesson that you live by.
“Being Human” Hope to work with you again. Love you sir.
Message to Katrina;
You’re one of the most beautiful souls I’ve ever met. So pure!
I have utmost respect for your sincerity, hard work and ridiculous amount of passion even in the smallest of things. I’d love to collaborate with you on an equally passionate project again.
Q. Which director or actor you want to work with?
A. “I would give an arm and a leg to be Adi sir’s (Aditya Chopra) lead and Raju Hirani sir’s lead. I worship them.”
Q. Any dream job?
A. “Dream job would be doing a passionate YRF romance in Europe. Also, I want to play a musician in a film. Like an intense love story. Rockstar, Sairaat kind.”
Q. Any dream girl in you life?
A. Jennifer Lawrence. I LOVE her!
