5 FAMOUS QUOTES:

An actor is only a part of the film, not the whole, and very often, he is moulded by the director. That is why a good director can make so much difference to a film.

Success is boring... failure is exciting and more entertaining.

It`s important for couples to be friends first and to respect each other as individuals.

In every role that I do - whether I`m a teacher, actor or mentor - I do it with total dedication and as much honesty as I feel is required because there`s no alternative to honesty and hard work.

As for my stand, I think it has become difficult in our country to be a Hindu and a liberal at the same time.
