"I generally don't select films keeping the business aspect of it in mind. I do not think whether the film will do well or not at the box-office. If I like my role and the script of a film, I take it up."
"I had kind of been away from the limelight for a year and after the release of Golmaal 3 people saw me on the big screen again and realized that I still exist. Also I have a few offers coming my way."
"After the release of my movie 99 there were a couple of scripts that I was working on. But the dip in the industry due to recession affected the film industry and even me. It was a tough time and really irritating. Nobody likes to wait for so long. But I chose to keep my cool and didn't take up anything and everything that came my way."
"I was born there and I moved away in 1990 when I was seven years old. After that my family moved away from there to Delhi and Mumbai. Now, only a handful of relatives live in Kashmir and we are constantly worried about them. It pains me to see that my birth-place is not a safe place to be in anymore,"
