Quote of the Day
I always wanted to be normal. I tried really hard, but it's like I try so hard and then people still say I'm offbeat. I've learnt to accept that and take advantage of it as an actor.
Some people like neat suburbs. I always am attracted to the rundown and the old and the offbeat.
William S. Burroughs

I think anyone who suffers from chronic pain can agree with this - you feel this great significance.

You don't have to do offbeat films to prove that you can act. I have done it but only to prove myself that I can fit convincingly into every kind of films. I want to do the 100 crore film where the hero does all the work, and I get to relax.
I've always chosen incredibly different roles and things that are quite offbeat. That way you're not limited.
