"I'm on comfortable terms with my father," he began. "He's my role model. Of course I was unable to talk about all of this and that with my father like a friend, but we did converse honestly. I even freely asked him for advice on my troubles. We were close since I was young. When the casting offer came in, I was a bit concerned about it. My heart was not at ease about it. However, my father turned out to have ambitions for TV. He started a diet stating that he'll get rid of his belly fat right away," and laughed.
