On Downfalls

On Awareness

"It's easy to be ignorant but it's very intricate to be aware."

On Working

"I'm like a Rolls Royce which can run without an engine, just on reputation."

On Cinema

"The enigma of cinema is gone because of the focus on business. As soon as you attach numbers to a film, you limit it. Films are meant to be an escape from reality. It’s something to take your mind away from everything that you do every day."

On Perfect Life

"A "perfect life" is a farce. God isn't making utopian ad films and screening them on the clouds to sell its USP to you. It's a man-made idea and we're buying into it all the time. Actually, there is nothing more beautiful than the imperfection of life."

On Philosophy

"Don’t become a philosopher before you become rich."
