You got a lot of strong reactions for the kissing scene in Ishqiya.
I'd never done a kissing scene before Ishqiya. And I'll never do a kissing scene again. SRK is the king of romance but he has never done a kissing scene. I think it was a gimmick in Ishqiya.I did it as my character was required to - he is aggressive and raw, unlike Naseer's character.
There was buzz that the kiss created trouble for you at home.
As far as my personal life is concerned, everything is fine. Every relationship has its ups and downs but Maria and I are very much together.
Even Vidhu Vinod Chopra seems to have a problem with you… he said you can't handle success.
Vinod has an opinion about everyone, and he says that about everyone. I don't have any problem with him. If another Munnabhai film is made, I will definitely be a part of it.
Despite doing some good films lately, why do people not take you seriously as an actor?
The problem is that when you are doing comedy, people can't take you seriously. One has to do more dramatic roles. But I don't think I should crib, because loads of films are being offered to me. I guess some things take time. I am waiting for my sunshine.
You were supposed to direct Hum Tum Aur Ghost, so why did you take on Kabeer Kaushik? And then you fell out with him.
I figured that between Boman and me, we'd have all the fun we wanted. But we wanted someone to handle the dramatic sequences, and that's why Kabeer came in as the director. Those scenes are very tricky. I didn't have any differences with Kabeer except for creative ones. We're not together now but it's not as if we had grave problems. I am sure he is upset with my orthodox way of working.
