5 FAMOUS QUOTES:

I really don’t understand why you put labels to actors.

I was known as a reluctant actor as I used to refuse nine out of 10.

I have heard enough horror stories but I have accepted this show on my own terms and conditions. If they deviate, I will quit.

When we talk of Indian cinema why do we only talk about mainstream Bollywood cinema? Why don’t we ever talk of parallel cinema, why don’t we ever talk of regional cinema?

When I chose to do theatre, I didn’t do mainstream commercial theatre; I did experimental theatre.
