The actor here spoke about how he doesn't like the term Bollywood, and said, "We were the first Hindi Cinema and we should be always proud of it. If the other Industry is called Hollywood why should we be called Bollywood? We should have great pride in being Indian and our Industry should be called as Hindi Film Industry and not Bollywood.''

“I don't understand why everyone is trying to copy them these days. We should rather be ourselves. We have the talent. The whole world stole our talent and has reached from where to where and we are trying to copy them. We should rather focus on developing our own cinema.”

The current generation is loving him and his role as Tara Singh. Talking about the same, he said, "I feel connected with the new generation of today. I feel the youth of today are trying to find out their country, their culture, and their history. I feel we will again have that talent that we used to have before and my promise to all of them is that I will keep making films like these."
