Well, being fit is not about flaunting muscles or biceps. Being fit is about flexibility and fit is about flexibility and body composition.
I see a lot of similarity between Bengali and Malayalam films regarding the basic emotions, the craftsmanship, art and performance. I also feel both the industries are very true to their art and culture.
I've always said that we must do local cinema but not lose sight of national appeal. That's the way New Theatres, L V Prasad, Gemini Studios operated.
I am open to do a Telugu, Tamil or Malayali movie. If I get a good script and good character, I will surely do it.
I wanted to be a hero, then I wanted to be an actor. But always I wanted to be respected as a good human being.
I share good relationships with politicians from all parties.
I don't have a fixed fitness regime, as everything depends on my work schedule and my fitness instructor. But I make sure that I work out 365 days a year for at least one and a half hours, no matter what.

As children we had traveled only in cars and led a lavish lifestyle. After father and we parted ways, we had little money to afford even petrol; I used to travel to the Tollygunge studios in the south of the city from our Dumdum home in the north by bus.

I am a wholesale entertainer.
All my life, Sundays have been a working day.
