  • Personal Quotes (14)

  • "A birthday is just another day where you go to work and people give you love. Age is just a state of mind, and you are as old as you think you are. You have to count your blessings and be happy."
  • "Critics have a job to do. They do not criticize you without reason."
  • "You have to understand that you are not making the film for yourself. You're making it for the audience. If I am asking my audiences to buy tickets, I owe them the worth of their money, and I owe them entertainment."
  • "Movie-making is serious business. The director and the crew are already under a lot of pressure to give their best to the audience. Therefore, the best part for me as an actor is to act well in the movies and make a jolly atmosphere with the co-stars on the sets."
  • "Whatever you do, do it from the heart."
  • "There is one common thing in superstars - enthusiasm and humility towards their work. Off sets, they are big stars for others, and they carry themselves the way they want to. When they are working, they are not stars."
  • "If I give five flops, I won't get a job. You have to perform at the box office when you are at the top. No one is running a charity here. People are putting huge amounts of money to make movies, and they want the films to be successful. They have invested money in you, so it is your duty to make sure the film does well."
  • "I think India is very passionate about films. It's almost a second religion back home. Due to that, I think film stars are - are really held in great esteem. Not that we're complaining, but I think with that comes a lot of responsibility."
  • "I do films that I like. I have done comedy, romance, everything, and I always like to do it differently from the previous ones."
  • "Honestly, I wish I could be a part of all the remakes of my father's films. But on second thought, I wouldn't want to be a part of any. The thought of being compared to him is unnerving. I'd rather do my films than live in the fear of living up to his standards."
  • "The best gift for an actor is the love of the fans. Many make sweet cards, write letters and even come and meet me wherever I am in India. The love and blessings of your elders is also always cherished, but the extra mile that the fans go to is memorable."
  • "The trade magazine and all was banned in my house. The first time I read a film magazine was when I was 18."
  • "Anybody who has interacted with me will definitely find me to be a chirpy person."
  • "By the grace of God, my parents were fantastic. We were a very normal family, and we have had a very middle-class Indian upbringing. We were never made to realize who we were or that my father and mother were huge stars - it was a very normal house, and I'd like my daughter to have the same thing."
