Zitat des Tages von Ali Fazal:
Mahesh Bhatt has changed me a lot. I used to be very held back with my words. He has made me open up. He has taught me how to say what comes to my mind, just as he does.
I love the kind of work I am bringing to the table.
The first thing that I see in a woman are her eyes. Sorry, it sounds shallow, but eyes say a lot about a person.
Movies have been great, but theatre is home. I've never been able to compare the two because they are different, special worlds. I'm just lucky to have a place in both.
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.
I am a diehard romantic, and I shamelessly accept that. I love writing letters.
In Bollywood, we are told exactly what to do and how to do it and not to counter things by saying there's a better way. We make our actors feel important by paying them more. But the real deal is when you let the actors take some decisions on the sets.
You will stand out if you do your part well.
I want to settle down.
Mothers are the only ones that think nothing is beyond their control when it comes to their children.
I was shooting for 'Bobby Jasoos' when I was offered 'Khamoshiyan.'
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 think the larger productions in India are very methodical and pretty much on the ball in terms of work. When I say work, I mean pre-production and the homework that's required.
The better the actor I am acting with, the better my performance gets.
I don't believe that you can learn acting in a classroom.
It is very nice to have good actors with you.
I am seldom home, as I keep travelling because of work.
When someone's good, my job becomes easier.
Playing a real-life character is a challenge and a huge responsibility.
The cast of 'Fukrey' will remain the same in the sequel. But the story is more of a fresh one.
When you first meet someone, it's always about one-upmanship. The couple tries to impress each other.
Women are really scrutinised for what they wear.
I got a chance to work with so many stalwarts from British cinema. Judi Dench, of course, who is a legend. Then there was my director Stephen Frears. He is the man who made some of British cinema's salient trendsetters.
Cinema has evolved, and it is high time we stop policing it so rigorously.
My grandfather was a civil servant. He was honest, so it would be unfair to say we enjoyed the perils of richness.
I think sometimes a part requires more than one approach or thought.
I am learning the grammar of acting on the sets. And I am happy that way.
Hollywood has got technology, method, and discipline.
I return to the stage time and again to see if I am worth anything.
I think it's fun to own a wardrobe and have loads of clothes.
Doing less films is sometimes intentional, but sometimes things just don't work out.
I have never really had a goal to be a true blue movie star, unlike a lot of my colleagues.
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.
I love 'My Beautiful Laundrette' and 'Dangerous Liaisons.'
Actors have a social responsibility.
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.
