"I just get up everyday and work. I am happy when people say that working with me is like a dream come true for them," he said.

"I'm just an actor who does his job and gets paid for it. I just pray that the amount of love and happiness which I have received continues," he said.
"I'm happy other people are also happy for me on my birthday. It is very touching," he said.
