Quotes

“It is wrong to assume that love marriages have a high success rate. It is also wrong to say that there is no romance in arrange marriages. My parents and in-laws had arranged marriages. I don’t think we can have the same romance in our marriage. As far as arrange marriages go, Sarita and I are meant for each other. I can’t live without her.”

“I used to refer matrimonial ads in college to find girls so that I could hit on them. And I had a love marriage. So referring Ads wasn’t required.”

“I’m very happy with the way my career is moving. I don’t think I have any complains. I’m sad that I’m no Shahrukh Khan. But I’m also very happy that I’m not a struggling actor.”

“I have always followed three principles which are very close to my heart…whether it’s for getting work, girls, or anything. First, fortune favours the brave; so you have to attempt it no matter how frightened you are. Second one is, try try and try again till you succeed; so I always try at least to put my point of views across and see what can be done. And thirdly, ‘next’; if not this one, then you will find a ‘next’ to achieve.”

“I’ve been doing exactly the same thing on every birthday. I spend the entire day with the family. I meet my parents and my wife Sarita’s parents, and we go out together.”

“I’ve gone through a lot. I wouldn’t take any money from my parents while I was trying to establish myself. I wouldn’t call it a struggle, I’d call it a journey. I’ve never gone through the depression and defeat that the word struggle implies.”
