A film of the scale of Mohenjo Daro needs a lot of time to get completed. Do you ever lose sight or patience?
When you read a script if it does not ignite every single cell in your body then you should not do the film. Before signing a film I ask myself if I am willing to give my right arm for the film, and if the answer is yes I go ahead. Once the decision is made, no matter how hot the weather is, or whether you are being bashed up in hot sand and things get really uncomfortable, all you need to do is keep going back to the original vision that you had while reading the script. And you realise that these hardships are the only way to achieve that vision. There is no other way.
There were reports recently a Rs 550 crore deal that you have signed with a channel for satellite rights of your films. Could you confirm?
Yes, I have collaborated with Star on a deal. I am not at a liberty to talk about the figures.
At IIFA you had said you will be a revealing lot of things soon on the issue with Kangana.
There is a lot I want to say but request you for a bit more patience. Sometimes the truth takes some time.
There were murmurs that you were upset with the fact that no one from the industry came out in your support.
When the truth on your side, you don’t need support!
