Obviously, after every film you do, you wonder what you're going to do next.
Luckily, there is a wind of change happening in Hindi cinema. Good work is coming to people who are not conventionally good looking like Ranbir Kapoor or Akshay Kumar.
Luckily, I have been offered the chance to play a South American, Hispanic and even a character from the Middle East in films. There are also a lot of TV series in the U.S. that have a strong presence of actors from India.
It's a great challenge to get to play a real-life character. Every actor would love to get a chance, at least once in his life, to play a real-life character.
There is a lot of Indian connect in 'Million Dollar Arm'. It is about two Indian boys, and we even shot quite a bit of the movie in India.
The thing about this business is that you always end up finding these amazing stories and these amazing people who make amazing films. I just want to work with good people and keep challenging myself with different kinds of characters.
Jon Hamm is such an amazing co-star. He used to set the tune of the scenes so easily, and in his free time, he didn't mind giving us cues. We picked up a lot from him.
Things are looking up, and hopefully, I will be doing good roles in both Hollywood and Bollywood.
I worked in SRK and Salman Khan's films as a child artiste, so Bollywood has always been on my radar.
