Quotes

“My father was a cook who used to cater food for special functions and events. I came from such a poverty that my mother once mixed poison in our food but something stopped us from killing ourselves. Such was the situation sometimes. Poverty that I experienced earlier makes me sees things in a realistic way.”

“Ever since I was a child, I was more interested in films. With much difficulty, I passed my B.Com. and I then started going around producers’ offices with my stories and songs.”

“On screen I will show grandeur and opulence but in real life I am very simple. I believe that when you have all the luxuries of the world then work takes a backseat. I have seen extreme poverty.”
