Kabir Khan is that rare director who manages to merge Bollywood formula with a good story.
I have done theatre, and I enjoy the process of smaller films a lot more. When I do such films, there are certain things which I get to do which are untapped. The scenes give me the liberty to play and mould the character in accordance to the director's mindset.
I can go back to poverty if a situation comes. I have sailed through the worst days of my life, and I am prepared for any crisis.
I don't want to take names, but there are some people who get everything served on a platter. This is a movie, this is your role, and you have to do it. Some people have to strive so hard to reach where they have and want to.
I do big films just to experience personal satisfaction.
Bollywood has always pampered heroes and treated actors as second class citizens. But, of late, it has realised that there has to be space for actors who can connect with people.
