I am not quitting modelling for Bollywood: Sahil Shroff

New Delhi: One of the most sought after male models in India currently, Sahil Shroff is taking a plunge into acting with Shah Rukh Khan starrer `Don 2` but he says he is not quitting the runway as yet.

Sahil is all set to make his Bollywood debut with the Farhan Akhtar directed film, a sequel to 2006`s `Don`, which also stars Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani and Lara Dutta.

"I am not quitting modelling. My focus though is more on acting now. Acting and modelling are intermingled. We act when we are on the runway. I can`t give up modelling because it brought me to acting. I would love to go back to the runway as a show stopper," Sahil told reporters.

Although he is working in one of the most awaited films of the year, Sahil says he is not nervous but rather excited to see the audience`s reaction.

"It is a brand new feeling. I am excited to be part of the year`s most awaited film. I am not nervous at all, I am rather excited. I enjoyed shooting the film and I am looking forward to its release and awaiting the reaction of the audience."

The model-turned actor said that he was aware of the fact that there were big names in the film but he made sure that he was not in awe of them.

"I didn`t do anything extraordinary to prepare myself for the film. I kept things very simple. I played what I was asked to play. On the set, I did realise that I was working with Shah Rukh, Priyanka, but I was not in awe of them," he said.

He also said that King Khan, Priyanka and director Farhan made him feel comfortable on the sets and he didn`t feel like a newcomer at all.
