I have been a depressed kid. I wanted to lead a quiet life, never wanted to be an actor.
I wanted to remain a bachelor from the beginning, but I got married thrice, and I don't know why I did it. I think it's not easy to live with me because of my impatience and busy schedules. Sometimes my mother is unhappy about a few decisions I have taken, but it is completely personal, and I don't want to make it public.
History and social sciences were my interests. I was always interested in knowing how societies get organized, why there is rich and poor divide, why there are classes. I was never apolitical. I think we are all political in a way. Politics decides our day-to-day life.
I never wanted to become an actor. I always wanted to be a farmer and dreamt of owning half an acre of agriculture land.
Nature, philosophy and social issues are the three things that always occupy my mind. You do not have any power over others but can only change yourself.
I feel the superstardom is God-given. I don't know how Pawanism came. I find it strange.
If I do not respond to some situation, my conscience kills me. I believe in permissible violence, not necessarily non-violence.
Caste is a delicate issue. It's ubiquitous, and we are full of it. We should start to change things from individual level. But when you go to people and deny caste, they may not react favourably. I think if a decisive percentage of people, especially elites, start marrying out of their caste, we may see a casteless India in a generation's time.
