"It's a pleasant surprise. I was sleeping, and I started getting calls from my friends. I thought they were kidding, but when I read the news myself, I realised that it's for real. I have been absent from the limelight, and that's my mistake. I wanted to make a movie and will soon make one as I want to be more active," he said
