About Women Ultimate woman:
"I divide women in two categories -- good and very good. A woman is arguably the best creation of God. They are so attractive."

Three kinds of woman

The mother:
"I feel she's the embodiment of power, stature and love -- everything that epitomizes a woman."

The widow: "For what she's gone through in this ruthless male chauvinistic society and how she's slowly but surely emerging to live a life of her own."

The Indian woman: "She is the most beautiful creation -- with a blend of beauty, sensuality and intelligence."

Women’s Day:
"To me every single day is women's day. Women seem to excel in everything they do. The balance of the male chauvinistic world is slowly tilting."
Believes in Amar Prem (Longlasting love)
Quotes About his Strength:
"My greatest strength as an actor is that I follow my director's brief completely. The film is always the director's visual baby."

"It’s a fantastic industry with the nicest people."

Love :
"Love is limitless and it is giving. There should be no expectations in love".

Being a sex symbol:
"I feel complimented when women and men appreciate the way I look. It's rather sweet. I thank them because it takes a lot to look in the mirror and believe it."
