Each is a Face of 2009 — take a look at the new talents who have carved their own niche in the last year
How does it feel winning a poll like this?
It feels wonderful. I am glad that these film-makers have shown confidence in me and I hope I don’t let them down — not only in 2009, but in 2010, 2011, 2012…
What would you say is your USP?
I am too new in the industry to think about my strengths and weaknesses. I go by my gut and I feel extremely grateful to be working with bright film-makers.
How ambitious are you?
I am extremely ambitious. I want to work with the biggest film-makers. I want to direct movies, produce movies and do it all.
People say you are a natural actor. Do you attribute it to your Kapoor genes?
I don’t really believe in genes. I don’t think a great surgeon’s son necessarily becomes a great surgeon. I think good acting has a lot to do with talent, a lot of hard work and lots of luck.
Who do you think has the potential to make it big, apart from yourself?
Imran Khan, Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor.
