Quotations

Don't be negative. It shows on your face.

I am like a Rolls Royce which can run without an engine, just on reputation.

I am not confident unless I am playing someone else.

I am very shy. If I am flying British Airways and the airhostess asks me two questions, and I don't understand her accent - I will go hungry for the entire flight.

I don't sit around complaining about the lack of good roles. I will play Raj 85 times and still make him different.

I think if you take sexuality very seriously it becomes very oily.

If you get bored with the person you married for love, there's something wrong with you - not with that person.

Often I don't say hello to people for fear that they may not remember me.

You never win the silver. You only lose the gold.
