"As actors, you get to play so many different roles every day, I find it very exciting. As an actor, it's thrilling that you can live so many lives on screen. It also helps you in getting to know yourself better -- like if you are an extrovert but you can play an introvert too on screen and vice versa. I also feel the profession helps you get closer to people around you because you start understanding, observing, and learning from them," he told IANS.
