He said, “Robert Downey Jr is probably one of the most gentle, humble and truthful person you will ever come across. However, when you are working, you put all of that aside. You put your fame, your ego and everything else aside.”
When I went for auditions and we were outside the audition room, Robert Downey Jr approached me and asked,” So are you playing Raza?” I said, “Yes I am.” He asked, “You want to run lines?” So once we did that, he said ” Look once we go inside, they will give us ten different ways of saying all of this. When we go in there, if you need to throw me against the wall or you need to slap me or if i need to slap you, lets just say we will do everything we need to do. Once we come out, we will hug it out and we will apologize. But in there, I am yours and you are mine.”
