Dearest TV media and vans outside my home, please do not stress and work so hard.
I did not resign from politics because of Bofors. I resigned because I do not know how to play petty politics. I did not know back then and I don’t know now either.
No new projects at the moment. There are restrictions to how much I can take on. And I need to finish those that I am committed to do before thinking ahead. But I’d rather they take final shape before we talk of them.
The select group of people who do make realistic cinema, who do make cinema perhaps a little more acceptable to the Western audience, is a very small percentage.
Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio – he be soo gorgeous, no wonder all the ladies flockin’ to him – He be Gatsby.
You don’t see Indians in Hollywood films around which a story can revolve. As soon as we have a social presence in your society, I am sure there will be many actors from our part of the world that will be acting in Hollywood films.
Frankly I’ve never really subscribed to these adjectives tagging me as an ‘icon’, ‘superstar’, etc. I’ve always thought of myself as an actor doing his job to the best of his ability.
The amount of things I have been through and the remarkable ways in which the body has reacted is just phenomenal. No wonder I became religious, because you don’t know why something’s happening to you and you don’t know how you bounced back.
There are many things that I feel I have missed out on.
Indian actors, because of the format of our stories, need to be good actors, and be able to perform emotional sequences, do a bit of comedy, dance and singing, action, because all of this forms just one film. In many ways I’d say there are greater demands on Indian actors than there are on Hollywood.
I don’t use any techniques; I’m not trained to be an actor. I just enjoy working in films.
Basically I am just another actor who loves his work and this thing about age only exists in the media.
It’s a war zone, my body, and one which has been through a great deal.
Everyone must accept that we will age and age is not always flattering.
I sometimes lament the fact that I do not have the benefit of a complete and ailment free body structure.
