It seems to me that it is not necessary to get up after falling, it is necessary to run." Adding, "I'm not just a comedian, I'm not here to please anyone, I'm an artist." After Atrangi Re, "I got a lot of love in spite of that I didn't do very well in the last two films, so its important to not just stand up but run in life."
"The truth is that I still will go and watch Love Aaj Kal and Coolie and I still will not be proud, so I need to grow up and I need to see the mirror for what it is, Loud over the top...fake nahi banna mujhe."
