Juicy Offscreen Quotes:

“You know, suggestive outfits tantamount to skin show and take away the meat from the character. I want the meat, not the bone.”

“When everyone says good things about you, you have to be careful that your feet remain on ground.”

“Neither of my first two Malayalam films got completed, and I walked out of the third, a Tamil film, because I was not comfortable. I was replaced in another Tamil film with the excuse that I could not act. They made me feel ugly to the point where I was scared to look in the mirror. In retrospect I thank God, and by God’s grace today the going is good.”
