Finally, after a long wait of 11 years, Murad Bhai came to me with a script, which I felt was worthy of taking ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ forward as a franchise. I am thrilled to announce ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ in association with Murad Bhai, together with whom we delivered the box-office hit ‘Kabir Singh.’

It seems to me a worthy goal: try to create a representation of consciousness that’s durable and truthful, i.e., that accounts, somewhat, for all the strange, tiny, hard-to-articulate, instantaneous, unwilled things that actually go on in our minds in the course of a given day, or even a given moment.
All religions worthy of the name are now making great efforts to purify their doctrines and return to their original standpoint, all except Christianity! You surely know that the nineteenth century Christianity is not the religion taught by Christ. Christ’s religion has been changed and corrupted.

The beauty of the innovation that flows from the open web is that no one has to ask for permission, get a credential, or win a Disrupt or Launch award to go prove their idea is worthy. They just… put up a page on the web, iterate, iterate, iterate… and eventually, a Facebook emerges.
Since I was , I’ve had that feeling of, ‘Am I enough? Am I worthy? Am I supposed to be here?’ And my culture and society is telling me that I’m actually not in a lot of ways – unless I have this amount of money, or I’m in this kind of car and I have this kind of job, or I’m famous, or whatever.

The NFL goes to great lengths to protect what it calls ‘the integrity of the game.’ The same should be said for us as individuals.

A true and worthy ideal frees and uplifts a people; a false ideal imprisons and lowers.

I always do a lot of work around characters to make them real people because, oftentimes, they really are a sliver of a person.

Sometimes we deny being worthy of praise, hoping to generate an argument we would be pleased to lose.
