Suraj Sharma's younger brother Harsh had actually gone to audition for Life of Pi but he lost out on the opportunity. Suraj said that, "I was a really bad student and would have done badly in my Boards and Harsh knows, this film saved me. So, he was very happy for me. Believe it or not, but we dark skinned guys would walk on the streets and pretend to talk in Chinese and people would believe it! We are so thick. So, no sibling rivalry. In any case, he's way ahead of me in everything".

As I said, after Pi I suddenly immersed myself in so many things that I didn't know what was happening around me. I'm not at one place long enough to find a girl who can keep pace with me. I'm 20 now, so I guess I have a while to get a girlfriend".
He also added, "I'm a nice guy and easy going so any girl should get along with me, provided I can find one. I like girls, a lot. I don't want to get into anything frivolous. No dating-shating for me".
