Working on a particular look doesn't make you a serious actor.

Any actor who says he does not like so many people shouting his name would be lying.

Robert De Niro... I had a chance to meet him, and I hope to get to work with him one day.

I don't think stardom will ever go to my head.

I think sometimes a part requires more than one approach or thought.

Hollywood has realised that we do have actors and are not just mad about song and dance.

You will stand out if you do your part well.

I have always felt that just to show love, you don't have to make two people do intimate scenes. That is not the idea of 'I love you.'

Judi Dench, apart from the name and fame, is the most genuinely hilarious, sophisticated, and loving person I have known. And I mean all of that together at once. That's something.

We can't stop people from thinking what they want to.

I was shooting for 'Bobby Jasoos' when I was offered 'Khamoshiyan.'

We have to keep pace with changing times.

The cast of 'Fukrey' will remain the same in the sequel. But the story is more of a fresh one.

The first thing that I see in a woman are her eyes. Sorry, it sounds shallow, but eyes say a lot about a person.

Women are really scrutinised for what they wear.

In Bollywood, the film's stakes are as high as the actor. In Hollywood, they are way above, and the day we realise this in our industry, we will start appreciating actors.

I think every filmmaker has his way of working, and I respect that.

I return to the stage time and again to see if I am worth anything.

Now, there doesn't have to necessarily be a white man in the lead role. That's the way forward. That's diversity. It's cool if an Indian is playing the lead role in a Hollywood project, and we should be proud of this.

'Victoria and Abdul' will surely tickle the hearts of many and prove that love has no definition. It can be pure and priceless.

I am humbled at the fact that I always get great support and reviews from my critics, but it's the film that requires to be good enough for it to work.

I am a diehard romantic, and I shamelessly accept that. I love writing letters.

I love the kind of work I am bringing to the table.

People think that theatre helps, but in my case, it slowed me down. I had to unlearn everything when I went on to a film set.

Actors have a social responsibility.

Every frame of every film is from a particular time. So, if you make a film in 2017, the times can't not have a bearing.

I am not into method acting.

I like to mix things up.

Goa isn't just about tourism and happy faces.

Playing a real-life character is a challenge and a huge responsibility.

While everyone usually turns up late at Bollywood parties, I always reach these places on time and end up making a fool of myself.

I don't see a full-fledged career in Hollywood. I am happy with the cameos. Even Tom Cruise will only do special appearances in our films; he wouldn't do a full hero movie. But it's good to act in different cinema.

Cinema has evolved, and it is high time we stop policing it so rigorously.

We were always a middle-class family who took pride in our little set-up.

I know where I am headed and how will I evolve. There's nothing stopping you. I don't have a family background on films, and I will need to work for it.

I have stepped into a bigger league with 'Khamoshiyaan,' and I am grateful to Mahesh Bhatt sir. I am also grateful to myself for being patient.

When someone's good, my job becomes easier.

I was offered to play an Italian part in an Italian film. Although I could not take it up because I did not have the time, the kind of characters being offered to us are changing.

I am happy with the way things are turning out for me because it is only my hard work and no one else's push.

Hollywood has got technology, method, and discipline.

One has to get rid of his inhibitions, being an actor.

The vibe of London as a city is captivating. It's both fast-paced and extremely rushed but still has the calmness that would attract any big-city person.

My grandfather was a civil servant. He was honest, so it would be unfair to say we enjoyed the perils of richness.

It is very nice to have good actors with you.

Actors are dumb when they get insecure of their co-stars. A lot of actors do. When there is a good actor, they're like, 'Oh, he's eating up the part.' That's stupid.

For someone who works in theatre, the rehearsal is where you discover everything. It is where magic happens, where the script enters you and becomes part of you.

I am really excited to be signed on by Julian Belfrage Associates, who manage some of the best talent out there, and I am really excited for this new dimension and beginning.

The better the actor I am acting with, the better my performance gets.

With every project, I have to grow.
