How important is it to be controversial to get noticed in show biz?
It's not important to get controversial at all. But what is important is to be heard. If you're silent you cannot be heard. So you got to scream, shout, yell and that's what I'm trying to do.
While other actresses don't have kind words for Mallika Sherawat you are thumbs up for the hot babe. Why?
I would want to salute all the fighters in this world. When I say fighter I don't mean just the army guys because life is a battle field for each one of us. Everybody has to fight everyday someway or the other. To be able to make it big here in Bollywood is not a child's game. You don't understand what goes into the making of a diva or a superstar and today Mallika has reached a league that is quite exclusive. It's a different league and she has managed to get there. She may not be an ideal to look up to for many. She may not be the one we would want to ape in our real lives.
Maybe she has many things not going for her as a person, as an individual, as a human being. But just to ignore all of that. I just give her credit for what she has become today. People criticize her and think of her as a mad girl and I admit everybody is mad and it is only this madness that can take us forward.
Show me one person who is totally saint and I would go down on my knees and worship that creature.
