You reach a stage in life when you have to take complete responsibility for your actions.
And stand by the people who've been true to you. I decided to take this step in my life as I knew I had found the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with, grow old with, and die with.
You may think that this is middle class thinking, and it is far from the "Serial Kisser" image that I have; but I think I'm a prude at heart.
Get ready for a shock: if you look beyond the serial kisser image, you will discover a very conservative, middle-class, old-fashioned Indian, who lives by the same values and ideals that our older generation had.
I don't think it's correct to drift from one affair to another and use people to scale the ladder of success.
That's not cool. If you have success and money, that's not enough. It is not all one should strive for in life. I found love with a woman even before I earned success, and yet she treated me as her Prince Charming. Even when I was a nobody and didn't have a dime in my pocket.
Today, things are going great for me but one day it will all be over. And when the arc lights are switched off, I know I will have the love of my woman who has always stood by me.
