“People make too much of stardom and it is a myth, and if people liked me in company means they liked the character i played, but not me and at the end of the day , people like actors more than characters.”
“I share a great chemistry with Aishwarya in “Kyun Ho Gaya Na”. But haven’t I shared an equally great chemistry Rani Mukherjee in “Saathiya” and Kareena Kapoor in “Yuva”? Our chemistry seemed so real that people thought I had something to do with Rani in real life”
“There is always a demarcation between being an actor and being a star. I don’t believe in stardom. I believe it’s a fallacy, a myth.”
“I’m not all that good. For my performance in Company out of 100 I’d award 90 marks to Ram Gopal Varma. It was his clarity of thoughts and his belief in the character that really worked for me. Nine marks I’d give the technical crew and my cast who supported me all through the film. And may be I’d take credit for the remaining one per cent.”
“I like to be with my family and friends. A good book, lip-smacking khaana, an interesting film playing on the DVD player, that’s my idea of a lovely, lazy evening.”
“Thanks to the wonderful support system provided by my father, I was never insecure about my future. I took my time to make myself into a complete product.”
“When he came to Mumbai, he had only Rs 400 in his pocket and a dream. Today he has more than 200 films behind him. I don’t know whether having him as a father is an advantage. But I’m working hard to establish my own identity.” [About his father]
“It was a dream-come-true to work with Bachchan Saab. I’ve hero-worshipped him all my life. He’s like god for me.”
About Aishwarya Rai
“Aishwarya called me on April 30 morning and said Salman had been sending her messages the previous night in which he said he was a ‘real man’ and was ‘not scared of Vivek Oberoi.’ The messages also contained threats about how he would ‘fight Vivek’ in order to prove who the ‘real man’ was. Ash wanted to know if all was well. It was then that I told her that Salman had been calling me all night, threatening and abusing me…. She is free to see whom she wants, get married, have an affair… he has no business to harass her like this.”
