#Quote
1"Admiration is not adorning the cutouts with blood or indulging in fights with other fans. But being of help to the needy, living life again by donating eyes after death is what I call genuine admiration of a fan".
2I play characters of ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances. I like characters who have a perspective for right and wrong.
