# “Even some of the best SMS jokes are on me. I enjoy them and forward them to my friends. I’m mature enough to take these things in my stride.”
# “I admire Rajnikanth a lot. He is a role model for all actors of this generation. I always maintained that I wanted to be like Rajnikanth and not that I want to be a Rajnikanth. He is friendly and encouraging.”
# “I believe in the ‘KISS’ policy,” you look at him perplexed. “Keep It Simple, Stupid!” is what it stands for. Life would be simpler if you take one step at a time and don’t get rattled by irrelevant issues.”

# “Acting is a learning process, and what you are doing in your early films is essentially picking up the nuances, the tricks of your trade. And somewhere along the line, you become analytical, and learn to enjoy what you are doing. Essentially, though, I see myself as a director’s medium – he needs something from me, I deliver it.”
# “I made mistakes and learnt from them. I allowed myself to be surrounded by riff-raff and got carried away”
# “I know! And believe me, remaining unprovoked through all the back-stabbing and canard isn’t easy. But I don’t wish to give importance to people who indulge in it, by reacting to them. None can gain mileage from slinging mud at me. All celebrities go through it. You either stay back or walk away. I opted for the former.”
# “The brash young Ajith is gone. Now I’m probably turning philosophical and even spiritual. I read a lot and it has made me realise the transience of fame and fortune. Agreed, it’s a rat race everywhere, but let’s move on … live and let live!”
# “I understood clearly that an actor’s job is much more than his appearance on screen. Considering the prevalent competition, an actor’s responsibility is manifold.”
