I was elated by the audience's love for him and yearned for it myself. Hence, I became an actor to win the audience's love and I am getting the love to which I am truly grateful,' he added.
Also when asked about how he used to imitate Dilip Kumar and Prem Nath after watching 'Aan' film, the veteran actor said: 'Dilip Kumar ji's film 'Aan' had released and I watched it as I was a big fan of his.
