Do I feel I should have been given more time? Of course I do. To go to a club like Manchester United and follow someone like Sir Alex after the time he had been there, to stay for ten months… It couldn’t be a revolution at Manchester United; it had to be evolution. It had to take time.
I hope ‘Tiger 3’ gets made because it’s a great franchise to be a part of. I hope I get repeated in ‘Tiger 3’ also because I feel that to work with Salman Khan Sir is the biggest thing ever.

No sir, I don’t have a crystal ball, but I do have common sense.

A losing trade, I assure you, sir: literature is a drug.

Sir one more comment like that and I will strangle you with my microphone wire!
