“Love before marriage makes u tie the knot and after marriage keeps the FMAILY happy” (about marriage)
“No, I don’t believe in isolating myself from society. I don’t want to lead a restricted life; I want to enjoy it. I go to theatres and snooker parlours with my friends. I am friendly with my fans. The only change now is that earlier, I used to play cricket every day with some children. Now I don’t get the time to play regularly. I am an actor only when I’m on the sets. With my wife and children, I’m like any other man.”
“Acting was not my first priority. I wanted to become an Air Force pilot. Failing that, I wanted to go in for my Masters in Business Management (MBA). I didn’t clear the NDA entrance examination. More offers poured in after Kaadal Desam became a hit. So I landed in films after I was done with college.”
“My first priority is the script. I don’t want to repeat roles. I want to show the audience a different face each time they watch my film. After the script comes the director and the technical team.”
“I scan each of my mails [firstname.lastname@example.org] and reply to (fans’ mail) all of them.
I feel it is important for an actor. We are nowhere without fans.”
” I’m more of a comedian - I like making people laugh”
