Because you are women, people will force their thinking on you, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go. Don't live in the shadows of people's judgement. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom.
Audiences change because life changes. Countries change geographically, climatically, socially and morally. Many things happen, and cinema, in a sense, reflects what's happening in the world.
I feel a burden if I don't write.
'What will people say?' is a feeling every Indian girl grows up with.
I would rather be an aware citizen, and if an opportunity were to arise where I would have to make a statement, I would happily do that.
I don't use any techniques; I'm not trained to be an actor. I just enjoy working in films.
I don't know how others think about me, but if I have to walk the streets, I will, and if I need to stand in a queue at the airport, that's OK.
I'd love to romance Aishwarya Rai. But I'm 58 now. So I have to play her father.
I just feel that sooner or later, the sheer potential of the demographics of India, which is 1.25 billion people, will eventually be very attractive to the entertainment industry.
I am not in the least eloquent or fluent with languages. My writing on social media is quite pedestrian. But even if it was near any acceptability, I would not be in a position to pen a script or a book.
Amitabh Bachchan — quotes and aphorisms
If you represent a fantasy for the people who actually go to the cinema, they grab that and go with it; therefore, for the rest of their lives, they actually identify you with a certain thinking — a certain philosophy. There are many actors who want to pursue that same thought in real life as well, and that's perfectly acceptable.
We play many emotions in our careers, emotions that in real life we would perform just once. For example, my character has died in about 10 films, so you have to keep searching for different ways to do it!
I have never really been confident about my career at any stage.
Yes, every venture is always filled with apprehensions. But if we were to conduct ourselves continuously on that aspect, then we would lose the most important reason to be in this profession: to challenge the art of and be part of what is commonly known as our creative instincts.
I don't spend much time looking back at what happened. I do remember it, but I don't see any purpose of wanting to look back.
I'd like to believe that tomorrow is another challenge for me. I'm sure there is lots more for me to do, because there is lots and lots of stuff still to be explored.
Don't let anyone make you believe the length of your skirt is a measure of your character.
There are large numbers of people in India below the poverty line; there are large numbers of people who lead a meager existence. They want to find a little escape from the hardships of life and come and watch something colorful and exciting and musical. Indian cinema provides that.
I sometimes feel that I have been born to attract controversy.
Having no work would be terrible.
