Quotes

“My dream role is to play Devdas but no such luck as SRK has already done the classic DEVDAS and latest Abhay Deol has played the contemporary Devdas”

“I am not very comfortable talking about my personal life. I am a very private person and I don’t even intend to share these things with anyone, whether it’s my misery or anything else.”

“Every story tells something new and different. If it fails to deliver, there is no harm but it should try to say something new. There has to be some newness in the story, or at least some aspect of the movie. I get bored if the story is told in the same way all the time. I get bored easily.”
