On being an actor

“You make choices in your life, some of them you do consciously. It has always been my need to play different characters, every time.”

“Every actor has their own space. We should not put them in boxes as the best, the worst, funniest, or anything. The business can never judge an actor’s worth. I only watch something if it is a good story and the actor has done a good job. That is important for me. It is about the actor who is able to tell the story in the best way possible through their medium.”Songs Lyrics 4 you

On what inspires him as an actor

“There are characters, and then their lives. Living these lives was a journey I always wanted to take up. That inspires me. A director’s vision inspires me. The stories inspire me.”

On why the audience connects with him

“I have no idea how this happens. I think everybody has their own zone. Everybody relates to different characters differently. What it does to people, you have no control over it. I think because I can relate to my characters, the audience can relate to them too. I am only concerned that the audience finds me engaging. What happens and why – I don’t want to think about it.”

On being a global star and not making a big deal out of it

“I don’t want to make too much noise without any reason. That’s how I prefer things to be. I like to be by myself. If people love me, they will automatically talk about me. Sometimes it is not necessary, for me, to make too much news.”

On the evolution of love

“There is no other thing as beautiful as love in this universe. It is the most natural thing to happen. I don’t understand why we are made to feel guilty about it or made to look at it as a taboo. I believe in the evolution of love. Two people who love each other don’t necessarily have to be together. If you love somebody, let them be.”
