I am a bit difficult to be around sometimes. I can be stubborn on a lot of things, and I'm set, but I can also adapt in a conflict situation and don't hold on to an ego. I end up seeing the larger good and adapt to it, provided it benefits me. I may come across as a cold person, but I am extremely sentimental.
Emraan Hashmi

Heroes always doing something that most people don't and we want to change - I want to democratise heroism to say any of us can be a hero.
