- His hobbies include travelling, dancing, and gymming.
- Before becoming an actor, he did modelling in Delhi. He also used to earn money by teaching kids in his neighbourhood.
- According to him, he is a very private and reserved person.
- In an interview, he revealed that he was not treated properly by the director while shooting of the show ‘Balika Vadhu.’ In the interview, he further added,
My director would never take my shot, only the assistants would take shots. They would call me early in the morning and make me sit for the entire day and probably in the evening I would shoot a scene. My director would always be irritated with me and I understand it now. But at that time I could not understand why they were behaving like that with me.”
- In 2018, to perform stunts in the show Mayavi Maling, he learned martial arts.
- In 2021, he was offered the lead role in the television show ‘Udaariyaan’ and he rejected the show three times before accepting. In an interview, he talked about this and said,
Funny story I had said no for the show thrice before agreeing. But I believe it was destined to happen. So my friends actually convinced me to do the show. Adding the charm of one hero with two heroines, who would deny such an opportunity? So I finally agreed to do the show.”
- He shoots for 14-16 hours a day and on Sundays as well. He wishes to take some rest on Sunday. In an interview, he further said,
Sunday should be fixed offs (laughs). In India, nobody wants to work on Sundays, no matter what you do or where you are, Sunday is a different feeling. Second one would probably be less working hours. Normal shift is for 12 hours, but we end up shooting for 14-15 hours, but if I can, I would probably bring it down to 8 hours.”
- He is often spotted drinking alcohol at various events.
