I never talk about my personal life. After these rumours, I definitely do not want to comment on anything.
I only want to do better work. That's the focus of my life.
Simply that we are mirroring the trends in society, at any given time smuggling was an issue in the seventies, corruption is an issue today, and we faithfully reflect those issues.
It gets tiring, doing the same thing everyday.
As far as I know, if you take your time, write a good script and make a good film, then give the audience time, they will accept it.
By getting into distribution and production, I am actually widening my base.
So it is fair enough that you are paying me what I ask for, because it is my name you are using to sell the film. If the producer gives me a guarantee that he will sell the film at a lower price to the distributors, fair enough, then I will charge less!
The difference being that in films, unlike in life, good does always win over evil in the end.
I have had 50 drinks in one go!
In the South, it is different, they have a audience that is literate.
There're so many things I want to do, like become more media savvy. I am too lazy. But I'm making an effort.
Today I divide my day between being actor, producer and distributor, and the monotony is broken.
There are two types of films - one made by the big-time producers, the other is low budget stuff made by some producers who make films for the heck of it, they complete their films for small amounts, sell it at low costs with almost no publicity.
I don't see the risk, I enjoy performing stunts, and I don't get scared.
To make a film and to sell it to the distributors you need a name.
Abroad, they have covered pretty much all subjects, explored every possibility, every twist. So similarities between ideas you have and those filmed abroad are quite possible.
If somebody had started on a remake of French Kiss before I announced my own film, I would have dropped my subject. If someone else starts after me, what am I to do?
You get an image after you act in a film, but it is not necessary that you last long because of that image.
Earlier, I used to charge territories instead of my fees as an actor, but I realised it was better to keep the two apart. Now, I take my fees in cash, for acting, and keep the distribution thing separate.
I'm going to keep making films I believe in. Whether I am successful or not is besides the point.
In the industry, you do need some ethics - if one film does well, then thousands get work and money comes back to the industry. I guess the bottomline is, if there are two versions, then the better one will click.
