I’ve always been the most vocal person socially about things that I feel are important.
I’m not a cribber, or someone who criticises. People who criticise are not doers. I’m a doer.
I was neither good in sports nor at studies, but I always wanted to stand out and be noticed.
I was able to overcome my failures because I was always confident of my abilities and was sure I could achieve what I had set out for.
I think in my mother tongue. That’s Hindi.
I think if you laugh at your troubles and tell the whole world what went wrong, you can’t be frightened by anything.
I speak for Kashmiri pundits because injustice has been done to them, and the political discourse doesn’t give them enough importance.
I know that some of the characters I played were trash. But then, I chose to take up those roles, as I enjoyed doing them.
I have played 50 different kinds of fathers and villains. Only mediocre actors play the part the same way.
I have always believed that directing a film is like telling a story. You have to tell it well so that it is appreciated.
I don’t think that I will say that we are less talented in Bollywood, but our functioning is different. We cater to a different kind of audience.
I discovered that the world frightens you with your shortcomings, but if you do not worry about it, you are liberated.
I approach every role with the same commitment because I’m being paid for it. To not do so would be unethical.
Every time I’ve crossed to a new level of film acting, the film has been a breakthrough project.
Every individual suffers from the fear of failure, but you can change your destiny only when you overcome it.
