In an interview with an Indian entertainment magazine Bollywood Hungama, he mentioned how he never felt the need to light one because he was indulged in sports. He also said that he began smoking when he was 26.
In the revealing Interview he said “I will tell you how it all began. When I was very young, I used to drink coffee as I needed that with my studies. It worked for me as I scored well too. Then I got into that habit and I can’t get rid of it. As for sleep, I am used to just four or at maximum five hours a day. I am going to quit smoking for the sake of my children”.
He added, “They hate me smoking. I find that as a blessing in disguise. If they had no problems, I would have continued smoking.”

But unfortunately, it has not happened yet.”
