My boss told me that today’s model hasn’t come, so John you do it. I said okay I”ll finish my work and do it. Then I wore the jeans and a woman from the agency said that the jeans fit me very well. But she had actually meant it. I got my first assignment, advertising for a jeans brand. It was a jeans campaign and then I continued working. Then I participated in Gladrags, a modelling competition which I won. I still didn’t leave my job. I continued working.”

One day, Mahesh Bhatt said ‘I want someone who looks like Sanjay Dutt, with a nice body. But the face must be innocent and vulnerable, and you have these elements. So do you want to give it a try?” I said okay. I will try. I didn’t want anything in particular. He gave me a film and he told me the film, in those times, will be controversial. If society accepts this film, then it will go on well. If the society does not accept this film, then this film will fail. The name of the film was Jism. That was my first film. After that came Saaya, Dhoom and other films came.”
