"The best thing is to accept the circumstances, not take them personally, deal with them, stop complaining, and give everything your best."
"I don't need to prove anything to others. Nor do I want to have the biggest bank balance in showbiz. What I want to keep on doing is to follow my passion. I want everyone to be rich and successful to understand that there is something else beyond that."
"I want to freewheel, to fly without a compass, not to prove a point to anyone else but for my own fulfilment."
"I think we are all insecure, and there is nothing wrong in accepting that."
"No matter what you achieve, what you want to aspire to be, or how famous and powerful you become, the most important thing is whether you are excited about each and every moment of your life because of your work and people around you."
"If you spend time with your loved ones, you get the energy to do your job better."
"Everything you know changes one morning; that two people who are close sometimes grow apart. It's sad but there's nothing you can do about it."
"Whatever dream you have, be sure that it is going to happen, and then forget about it. Then you have to come back to the present and be there 100 per cent."
"To be able to make statements, you need to be confident about what you think. You need to have a sense of right and wrong."
"For me, the opposite of happiness isn't sadness but boredom. If you're excited about doing something then you're happy."
"If you are seeing something for the first time, one of your first reactions should be fascination."
"The closest synonym of happiness is excitement, and you can generate it by doing something that you can't completely comprehend. This understanding makes the process rich and exciting."
"Everybody is in a hurry to decode you in a certain way, and then they expect you to adhere to their definition. How can they possibly do that when you yourself are finding it hard to discover yourself?"
"Any kind of positive feedback, validation and acknowledgement is always good. So if I get an award, I'll naturally feel good. But at the same time you have to understand that it's as true as it's not. For instance, I may not be thinking of chocolates. But if you offer them, I'll take it saying thank you because I love chocolates. But if you don't do that, I'll probably not miss having a chocolate."
