Mumbai: Laughing away reports that he collapsed on location in Bangkok while shooting for `Main Tera Hero`, director David Dhawan says he is in perfect health and in no mood to hang up his boots.

Speaking from the location David said: "I don`t know why everyone is so eager to see me give up doing what I am best at doing. I`ve no intentions of falling ill."

David says that after his health scare last year when he collapsed during an event organised by Shashi Ranjan, health is a priority.

"I am looking after myself. There is no point in killing myself over the workload. There was a time when I was shooting two films on adjacent sets and sometimes an average of three films a year. Now I`ve nothing to prove. Let my sons do all the work. Not that I am planning to retire."

Reacting to reports that his elder son Rohit had taken over the direction of `Main Tera Hero`, which stars his younger son Varun, David said: "Rohit is here to meet his father and brother. We are a family.

"And if I need him to direct for me, I`d happily ask him. Right now I am hale and hearty and I am on location in between shots as we talk."

"I know an ailing David Dhawan makes far better news than a healthy one. But sorry to disappoint," added the director of hits like `Biwi No. 1` and `Partner`.
