I have had unsuccessful films, but I learned a lot from those films. I give my failures as much importance as my success.
The truth is that no matter how many retakes you do, each will be different and that is the nature of any creative medium. There’s no such thing as perfection.
I do what I feel is right. I do not fear to walk on a new path and take risk.
I do not believe that I am a perfectionist one bit. I truly believe that perfection is something that no one can achieve.
I don’t do films because they tell a particular kind of story, I do films with stories that touch me.
Losing someone we love, or the fear of losing someone we love one day is a difficult experience and we can all relate to it. None of us are an exception to this reality.
The journey that I have undertaken, meeting people from all walks of life and learning from them, has been my biggest achievement.

The true marker of success is when the creative minds behind a film can sit down and feel that they have succeeded in the mission they set out to accomplish – and that is to make good cinema. If we feel that we have achieved that as a team, then we have all been successful.
I personally feel that I should support people who are doing good work and people should also support such good work.
If a script has that affect on me during a reading, then it is definitely a film I want to be part of.
I am very passionate about being an actor, and I allow my passion to find its outlet in the work I do. I don’t believe that it can be called perfection. It is true that when I am intensely passionate about my films, which I am, I don’t leave any stone unturned and I put every ounce of my energy into that project.
The rule I have when choosing films is the excitement factor, I need to feel excited about the story and whatever message the film has – only then do I sign on the dotted line.
When I was new, I didn’t know where my career will go. Initially, my films were not even successful, but then I learned a lot from my mistakes.
A film just doesn’t involve actors, a director and a producer, there is also the cameraman, the sound engineer, the music composer, the lyric writer. So many people come together to make a film. When we all feel satisfied with the film that we have created it’s a win for all of us.
To be quite honest, numbers don’t tell you everything because audience reactions differ. Some of the biggest films at the box office are not necessarily films that everyone has loved, they just opened to a good response.
When you work with a good actor, there is this natural rapport and chemistry that develops over time. That chemistry helps your characters come alive and makes the story of the film that much more convincing.
I would love to work with Salman. We have a great tuning so if we work together, it will be great fun. But till the time we don’t get a good script, a script that excites both of us, we can’t work together.
Filmmaking is a creative process so there is a lot of collaboration that happens on set between an actor and director, but at the end of the day, we’re there to actualize the director’s vision and things happen organically.
