Quotes

 

“Instead of focusing on my looks I focus on the character that I am playing.”

“I didn’t make too many friends while I was growing up. I was a loner and a dreamer and possibly too restless. It was only with the passage of time and a degree of success, that I have been able to make friends with a few like-minded people, mainly film makers. My best friend, however, remains my wife Sunita. ”

“They are constantly embarrassed. They’re embarrassed about me, about my films, they are embarrassed about everything I do.” [ about his children]

“I have never cared about the statistic and numbers involved in filmmaking. I have always made films that have appealed to me irrespective of it’s commercial viability. And I have done it again with Gandhi My Father. I hope everyone likes the film.”

“After the wonderful experience on Gandhi My Father if I had my way I’d cast Akshaye in all my films. I’m very very fond of him as an actor and as a friend.”

“Yes, once the camera was switched on Anil and I were fiercely focussed on doing our best. And what’s wrong with that? Race is a thriller. Anil and I had a ball working together as actors again after Subhash Ghai’s Taal. Yes we were really in competition for Race. From ‘start camera’ to ‘cut’ we became co-stars. Once the camera was switched off we were comparing notes. Kaisa kya kiya….tu kaisa tha…main theek tha?? ” [Akshaye khanna about Amil kapoor]

“The entire South African cabinet was there with us. The President himself spent more than five hours with me and the director and cast of Gandhi My Father. Nelson Mandela sent a special message to open the film. Mandela not only spoke about Gandhi, he spoke about me. What was heartwarming and humbling was that Mandela thanked me for making this film, whereas in truth I should thank Mandela and South Africa for letting me shoot Gandhi My Father in their country and allowing me to hold the world premiere there. Mandela identified deeply with the film.”

“It’s gone beyond any of my expectations. Gandhi My Father has taken on its own life. I don’t know where this film is taking me.When President Mbeki said that he’ll show Gandhi My Father on the Ivory Coast I felt I had got the biggest award of my life. He feels the film might bring together the warring factions on the Ivory Coast. I feel the film is going beyond boundaries now.”
