I am not seriously thinking about the title ‘Sir’ and all that.
I’d like to say I’m R&B’s savior. Whether that’s the truth or not, I’m definitely going out there with my mic and my shield to declare, ‘I am here to save R&B.’ I will have the people saying, ‘Sir, there is a man at the musical gates saying he is here to save R&B.’

Pawan Kalyan sir today is my strength in the industry.
Sir Isaac Newton gave the extraterrestrials their biggest shot in the arm when he embraced the infinite universe as the basis for his hugely influential system of physics. Even so, the aliens of the early modern period remained creatures of philosophy rather than science.

It’s a real blessing for me to tell you, sir, that calvary has arrivedFox is here!
I guess as you get older you sort of see the mechanics, even with the best comedians. There’s admiration for people I admire, but it’s not guttural laughter. It’s a wry ‘Oh, well done, sir.’ But I sort of miss that slightly; I miss the raw joy of comedy I used to get.
When I’m a stunt woman on a movie, I’m strictly a ‘Yes sir,’ girl… But acting puts more in your hands, and producing gives you more control still.

For three years, between 16 and 19, I was the opening-act-for-the-opening-act-for-the-opening-act, you know? And then I was on tour with Ice-T, Stetsasonic, EPMD, Sir Mix-a-Lot – legends – and went on to sell 160 million records. It still baffles me.
‘Indian’ is a cult album. It is one of my most favourite Rahman sir albums.

I get a lot of fan mail addressed to Bilbo and sometimes Sir Bilbo – it’s hardly ever addressed to Ian Holm, in fact. My business manager drafts the replies, and then I pop in to the office and sign them, ‘Bilbo!’
Ian Holm
The first time I retired, only Sir Alex Ferguson and I knew that the last league game of the 2010-11 season against Blackpool was to be my final game at Old Trafford.

Was I believer in Enron Corporation? Yes, sir, I was.
Jeffrey Skilling
I have no problem with Sir Alex Ferguson.
There is a myth that Rahman sir only works at night. He works through the day and night, so it depends what time slot you end up working with him. Besides nights, I have sung for him in the morning and at noon, too. I think he’s the first composer to work at night, and that’s why it’s spoken about so much.
Yes, sir. I’m a real Southern boy. I got a red neck, white socks, and Blue Ribbon beer.

Sir Larry could be very strict and a disciplinarian, too. He had many faces; he wore many hats. But, ultimately, he loved the theater and he loved actors.
It’s nice to have a few names. I use a few names myself. I use a few different surnames. I call myself James sometimes. I actually use my mother‘s name as a professional name. But if someone calls me Mr. Murphy or Mr. Gillen, I don’t like that. I don’t like being called ‘mister,’ and I don’t like being called ‘sir.’
I like to be busy. I once shared an agent with the late Sir John Gielgud, who, at 96, was apparently still ringing up, saying, ‘Hello, Gielgud here, any work?’ Good on him. We’ve got to keep working. If we retire, there’ll be nobody to play the old wrinklies, and that would be a dreadful shame.
It was funny because on the day that I joined the club, the newspaper that broke the news was one that people don’t always trust or believe. Then, when I signed, and there were pictures of me and Sir Alex Ferguson, people believed it.

Look at all of United’s successful teams under Sir Alex Ferguson and their captains were all big personalities: Bryan Robson, Steve Bruce, Roy Keane, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic. You would follow them all into the trenches.

I had an awful first quarter but I picked it up. To all you single guys out there, it’s not how you start the date, it’s how you finish it sir. A lot of people can, you know, start the date with flowers and candy, but if you don’t finish the date – you know what I mean?
When I started, there were no Indians on television or films, except for Sir Ben Kingsley. I was an actor in high school, college, and I played leads.

I come from a small village called Murud Janjira near Alibaug. I started doing theatre right from school days and later joined the Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art, after which I joined an advertising agency.

People come up to me on the street and make some little joke – like they’ll say, ‘Excuse me, sir, what time is it?’ And I’ll say, you know, ‘5:15,’ and they’ll say, ‘Hey! Made you talk!’ And that’s merely a way of saying, ‘I know your work and I like you.’

There is a lot one can learn from Akshay sir, if one needs to learn punctuality and how to shoot in time, one should learn that from Akshay Kumar.

I also found being called Sir rather silly.
Rahman sir was the first music director I met and I was very nervous after meeting him. I made him listen to some of my songs nervously and he told me that my tone is good but I required working on the maturity of my voice with respect to my age. That was the golden advice I got from him.
I was not up stairs when he came home; no, sir.
Lizzie Andrew Borden
I’d be happy to be taken as a woman – and that’s what I was initially trying to do when I started throwing on dresses and stuff. But that wasn’t going to happen because everyone kept calling me sir. So I thought I’d change the method and just start wearing what I wanted to wear.

It was a completely different experience working on ‘Chhichhore’ with Nitesh sir. The way he narrates and the way he directs actors is completely unique. He has that rare quality of blending a great story with finely-etched characters and an underlying message.

Terry Francona

I need to find a church on Sunday. I need to say ‘please‘ and ‘thank you,’ ‘yes sir’ and ‘no ma’am.’ Do the little things because that’s part of being an adult.

If Sir Alex says, ‘Listen, I want you to play for my team,’ it’s very difficult not to say yes.

Sir Wiggo sounds nice.
I’ve seen almost all of Rajinikanth sir’s movies, at least the ones that have come to Mumbai, since I don’t understand Tamil. I loved him in the movie ‘Hum’ as well.
But, sir, I shall take the path of duty and shall not swerve from it.
Benjamin F. Wade
The fear of letting people down – that’s the drive. Sir Alex, I think, if he was brave enough to say it, he would say the same, but in his eyes, the motivating factor is that you want to be the best.
If you want a measure of how private a place the dressing room was when I was growing up at Manchester United, consider this: even Sir Alex Ferguson would knock before coming into the dressing room at the Cliff, the old training ground. The dressing room is for the players – and the players only.
I have been a few times to Manchester United to have a look. I got a tour and spoke with Sir Alex Ferguson. Being a 15-year-old and being able to talk with him is great!

The greatly anticipated 2009 Masters was like going to a Broadway hit and finding out that the star, Sir Tiger Woods, was off that night, and his replacement was the cab driver who dropped you off at the theater.
Of course David Moyes is going to come under scrutiny because he’s taken over from a legend in Sir Alex Ferguson and they’ve made their worst start to a season in 24 years. But we mustn’t take away credit from what West Brom did. Few teams go to Old Trafford and dominate the ball and carve out chances the way they did.
I have immense respect for Nitesh sir and really admire his work. He’s one of my closest friends in the industry, with whom I can have a heart-to-heart chat.
Vita Sackville-West is one of my favorite female icons. She was a writer and a prolific gardener, but she also had a relationship with Virginia Woolf, and she was married to Sir Harold Nicolson. She was a woman who lived outside of norms.

When you work with Sir Anthony there are days when he will do a lot of takes if he’s really enjoying a scene.
Claire Forlani
Obviously, replacing Sir Alex Ferguson was never going to be easy – not for him or for anyone.

He was the one who called me, who welcomed me, and the one who gave me the confidence to come here.
I would love to work with Sir Anthony Hopkins. How and why that would happen in a comedy I’m not sure – why he would be dragged over to my side, or I’d be be dragged over to his side.

Sir Alex Ferguson is the most impressive person I’ve met in terms of charisma and achievement.
Angus Deayton
I’d love to work with Sir Anthony Hopkins, but if that doesn’t happen, I’d sneak on to a film set and watch him at work. He is a compelling actor.
Marc Warren
I tend to discourage people from calling me ‘Sir Ian,’ because I don’t like being separated out from the rest of the population. Of course, it can be useful if you’re writing an official letter, like trying to get a visa or something passed through Parliament. They’re impressed by these things.
Don’t call me ‘sir; ‘King Jew‘ will do fine.
I have been fortunate that ‘Pink‘ has been that film which gave my career a push. I owe a lot to Shoojit Sircar for having faith in me and my co-stars Taapsee Pannu and Amitabh Bachchan sir.

When the Second World War came to an end in Europe, my uncle Sir Alexander Korda was the first filmmaker to reopen offices in Germany and Austria.

Yes, sir, I was in the processing room watching them actually process the film.
Abraham Zapruder
I don’t usually get star struck, but I met Sir Paul McCartney randomly on Sunset Boulevard a few years ago, and I lost it! I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t think, and I didn’t know how to speak. It was crazy. He was nice enough to talk to my family and me for 10 minutes, but I remember babbling away about nonsense.
Sterling Knight
Rajini sir has always been a part of my life from childhood. And I entered into filmmaking because I was influenced by his films.
Whenever I bump into Rajamouli sir, I jokingly ask him about ‘Eega 2.’ As a fan of ‘Eega,’ I want the sequel.
I still find it a bit surreal that Sir Elton John can call Troy Deeney from Chelmsley. It’s quite entertaining but a bit surreal.
I remember that, often, Mike Phelan would just nip down to the touchline for a message to one or two players. It was usually just a tactical thing. But when Sir Alex comes to the touchline, all the players know that it’s serious stuff.
I was introduced to Amitabh Bachchan by Ram Gopal Varma. He said ‘Hello Sudeep’ and I just said ‘Hi, sir.’
‘Tum Jo Mile’ came as a surprise. Vivek and Kumaar sir, who has written the song, sent me the track just to listen. I was in London at the time for my world tour. I heard the song, and I fell in love with it instantly.
You’ve got to admire Sir Richard Branson. He is a completely different style of businessman to me, but you have got to admire what he has achieved.
I have seen humility in many of the finest leaders I have met the world over. And indeed, it is embodied in the warm, engaging and quintessentially successful spirit of Sir Richard Branson.
I am indeed fortunate to work with some reputed directors like Balaji Sakthivel, Sekhar Kammula, and KV Anand sir. Each one of them has a different style, and every day is a learning experience for me.

It makes me feel good that I can now sit there and go, I’ve worked with Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino, all the great actors that I’ve worked with… Sir Ben Kingsley.
I grew up with the great Sir Laurence Olivier, and I think it’s fair to say that a lot of actors of my age were influenced by his very individual vocal delivery. He was a showman who would always play to the gallery.

Actually Maddy is my name. But I feel that whenever you address somebody, there needs to be certain amount of dignity rendered to it – irrespective of whether it’s a film star or somebody you are fond of. I find it very pleasing when somebody refers to me as ‘Mr. Madhavan’ or ‘Sir’ or ‘Mr. Maddy.’
When you change a manager like Sir Alex Ferguson, it is difficult.
Nobody’s ever called me Sir Richard. Occasionally in America, I hear people saying Sir Richard and think there’s some Shakespearean play taking place. But nowhere else anyway.
I started with veteran K. Balachander sir, who called me for his series ‘Anni.’ He promised me that he would make sure that I get good film offers as well.
Adithya Menon
Sir, I see a lot of documents in my day-to-day business, and I can’t tell you every document that I’ve seen. It may have passed across my desk. It may not have passed across my desk. I truthfully cannot answer that question, other than to say I don’t remember.
Rand Beers
The speed at which cinema is changing, the definition of hero is also changing. Even a big superstar like Aamir sir plays the role of a father. There’s action genre, where you have to show body and do stunts, so you may call that a hero.
It was a dream come true to meet GR Viswanath sir, who is a legend in the game.
No, sir, I’m not saying that charming, witty and warm copy won’t sell. I’m just saying I’ve seen thousands of charming, witty campaigns that didn’t sell.

In my eyes, I will never be up there with the Sir Steve Redgraves and the Sir Chris Hoys of this world. It’s not something that drives me; I just enjoy going to the Olympic Games.

My first-ever meeting with Abbas-Mustan sir was for three-four hours! I haven‘t met anybody for so long, even those who I know well.

My favorite actor is Sir Ben Kingsley – nobody is as good as him, in my opinion. I think he’s so good as an artist.
Josh Peck
Oh, Mr Coward, sir – I could never have an affair with you, because you remind me of my father!
Kenneth More
It was a wonderful experience working with Nagarjuna sir. I mean, I never expected this to happen. For me, who watched his films standing in a queue at theatres, and now sharing the screen with him is a huge thing.
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.
I have my strong faith, respect, and belief in Rajamouli sir. The fact that he believed I could play ‘Baahubali’ was huge for me.
You know, I got kids. I got sons, and I try to tell them, ‘Look, man, when you in the car and you get pulled over, hands on the steering wheel. ‘Yes, sir. No sir.’ Your job is to either wind up in jail, so I can come get you, or be able to pull off. That’s your job.’
Women become aunties as soon as they are married while men become sir. And this happens not just in India but everywhere in the world, including Brazil.
It’s a great honour that someone like Sir Alex Ferguson goes out of his way to mention my name.
In our comic cons and interviews, they’re always asking him questions, of course, because people love Jean-Luc Picard. They love Sir Patrick Stewart. But he always likes to stop everyone and go, Wait, but these new characters, I can’t wait for you to meet these new people.’ He very much always tries to make space for us.
I don’t think there’s anything cliche feminine about Jane Austen. And, anyway, her earliest champions were Sir Walter Scott and the Prince Regent.
It’s spelled, like, S-E-R-G. I always thought it would be funny if I called my son ‘Sir.’ Like calling your daughter ‘Ma’am,’ or something like that.
Lots of people come up to me and call me Sir Bruce now. Interviewers call me Sir with every question, but I never make a point of making people call me Sir. It doesn’t matter to me, though; it was a great honour to be knighted. I’m very proud of it.
He is really something. I love him. He is Sir Arsene Wenger.
I met Rajini sir after ‘Jigarthanda,’ and he said he liked my film. He told me I could approach him whenever I had a good idea. I had never thought he would listen to scripts from new directors. After the meeting, I wondered, ‘Should I take his words seriously or not? Should I write something?’
No singer who sings for Rahman sir would ever say they were nervous to sing for him, especially during the session.
No sir, I don’t have a crystal ball, but I do have common sense.
Every true man, sir, who is a little above the level of the beasts and plants does not live for the sake of living, without knowing how to live; but he lives so as to give a meaning and a value of his own to life.
Luigi Pirandello
It is all about experience. When you are 7-8 years old, you start playing school cricket and score runs; my coaches, from school level to Rahul Dravid Sir now, all those small, small things – the experiences make a difference.
We must take positions. Our weakness in the West is born of the fact of so-calledobjectivity.’ Objectivity does not exist – it cannot exist!… The word is a hypocrisy which is sustained by the lie that the truth stays in the middle. No, sir: Sometimes truth stays on one side only.
I have great respect for him. Sir Alex has won many trophies and is the most important manager in the world.
Naseer Sir taught me while I was a student at the Film and Television Institute of India. Anything I know about acting is thanks to him.
A losing trade, I assure you, sir: literature is a drug.
George Borrow
In this industry, people want a ‘yes sir’ attitude. But ad men usually have a chip on their shoulders. We have more money and are more successful. We call everyone by the first name. My assistants call me Vivek but I don’t care.
Luckily, ‘Petta’ encompasses all the dimensions of Rajini sir’s performances. His main strengths are his charm, style, and the fun that he represents.
When I see the kind of passion Sir Alex shows, it is hard to believe he is about to celebrate his 71st birthday.
Growing up, everyone dreams of certain things, and they map out a direction that their life would take. Working with A. R. Rahman sir is one of my dreams, if not the biggest dream, realised.
My mom knew Salman sir, as they grew up together in Bandra. He would often tell my mother Genievev Advani how one day he would be a star. They have been friends for the longest time and would go cycling together.
I really don’t remember my first meeting with Arif Sir.
A fly, Sir, may sting a stately horse and make him wince; but, one is but an insect, and the other is a horse still.
Sir one more comment like that and I will strangle you with my microphone wire!
