Suniel Shetty and Sana Khan unveiled the Stardust Dhamakedaar Naaz Women Achievers Of India Awards Issue on Monday. During media interaction, Suniel said, he thinks actors aren’t as friendly as they used to be before and feels fortunate to live in an era where actors used to spend a lot of time together.
Suniel who has worked with most of the other male actors of the industry says actors aren’t as friendly as they used to be before. When asked who is his favorite person in Bollywood Shetty said, “Fortunately I have a lot of favorites, I shared a fantastic rapport with Salman, with Ajay, Abhishek, Sanju, Akshay Khanna and Kumar, and we really, really did bond. I think I have been fortunate to live in an era where we used to spend a lot of time together. For us shooting meant playing cricket, going to the gym, sitting after the shoot and having dinner together, pulling each other’s legs, and playing pranks but I don’t see any of that happen as much today.”
Since he is cricket enthusiast, Suniel was asked if he would like to own an IPL someday, he said, “If I had the money I defiantly would but I don’t have deep pockets, unfortunately, the game is also about the kind of pockets you have. And I don’t come from a corporate house that I need the branding of the corporate house. As a business, I don’t think anyone thought it would become so big. IPL probably is the biggest revenue grosser when it comes to sports in the world.”
Many actors later on join politics when asked if he is in the midst to join the field he said, “I don’t think I am cut out for politics. I can’t be ruthless; I can’t work without a heart. I need to put my heart in my work and as far as Indian politics is concerned its filled with crab mentality. They will pull someone back because they are doing something good and I don’t have that in me. I would rather spend time with my grandchildren than do anything else and be involved socially.”
He further added, “I do a lot of stuff throughout a year whether it is for sports or fitness where you don’t necessarily have to talk about but keep doing and I think I enjoy that part of it hell of a lot.”
The actor was last seen in a negative role in the 2-17 release ‘A Gentleman’ directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK co-starring Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez.
