There are quite a lot of YouTube clips of me that have gone viral.

She said, 'What if you are wrong?' and I answered that rather briefly, and that's gone viral.

The institution of marriage works better when there's a spiritual connection. If you're marrying just for the sake of the woman, then you may lose interest in each other very soon.

A. R. Rahman
