I think love can happen at any age... it has no age.
As far as the public is concerned, India is amazingly secular.
Even though I am fantastic looking, I am still quite intelligent.
Sometimes, I feel the reason I have become a star beyond my films is that I am politically incorrect.
Just be nice to me while I am doing the scene; that is all. I don't want big cars, I don't want big hotel rooms.
I don't teach my children what is Hindu and what is Muslim.
I have never claimed to do the right kind of things and make politically correct statements.
There's a whole form of literature in India which talks about the quest for the perfect man by a woman, where every woman looks for a perfect man but only ends up with half that.
People talk about Bollywood being very kitsch, and just songs and dances, and over the top and colorful.
Whether people like it or not, my marketing thought is if you keep something in front of people for too long, they get used to it.
I don't really have much to prove. I can easily go in a comfort zone, make two films a year, hype them because I've signed them as a star, make them cheap and they will be big hits.
The line between what I really am, and what I am on reel, is slowly diminishing.
I don't kiss on screen. Period.
I don't like the trappings of stardom. I wear the shoes and the Dolce & Gabbana, because I'm told to. But I'm not trapped by it.
I personally believe the film turns out better when shot in one short schedule, plus it doesn't stress the actors.
Youngsters are the most discerning audience. They want entertainment, they want issues.
I'm too shy to do kissing scenes.
It is stupid on my part to think of banning the media.
If I talk to a girl, it's assumed that I'm having a scene with her. If I don't, then it's assumed that I'm gay.
There's a personal me, there's an actor me and there's a star me.
