He said: "Most of the youth is on the Internet. In fact, when I was shooting for my film 'Sui Dhaaga...' in Chanderi, most televisions didn't work and there were no cinemas. But everyone had high-speed internet, which is probably how they know me; through my songs and videos on YouTube.

"Digital India is way bigger than we think and our film industry has woken up to its importance and now uses it to reach out to the masses."

On his favourite social media personality, he said: "It is 'The Rock', Dwayne Johnson. I think we all have something to learn from that man."
