“Definition of love differs for different humans. If I will talk about me then it’s something that makes you forget about everything else.”
Love play important role in everyone’s life. The description and imagination of everyone about that particular concept are distinct. We are struggling in this world and feel alone but, when we realize that someone loves us, we feel pleased. One of the subjective explanations of love is something that makes us blind and covers our entire existence. We forget everything and just live a pink life.
“You can’t always expect to work with a director who guarantees success.”
Success in the field of cinema is like a lottery ticket. It can make you a billionaire or can make you a beggar. No one can guarantee us that this film is going to become successful. We can make a good film after taking the effort and pouring great performances but whether it will be appreciated by the audience or not is a tricky thing to measure.
“I don’t know why, but rain comes into my head the minute I think of my childhood.”
Childhood is the best phase of life. Louis Gluck in her poem talks about childhood with a matured innocence. People may feel nostalgic after remembering their childhood. Rain is the metaphor used for tears in many literary works and that rain hurts us and makes us feel the pastimes.
“Music is my breath, blood, and food – without music, I would perish; the actor in me would die.”
Music is considered an integral part of everyone’s life. In metro cities where people are travelling daily for 4-5 hours, they survive just because of music. It is like oxygen for those who are suffocated at the workplace. It is like the most fundamental part of our physiology and it is the hunger for mentally starving people.
“In life, there is good, evil, love, and hatred. What we desire, choose, and need to pursue is in our hands.”
Life facilitates various emotions and different notions. We have three Gunas and we can restrict ourselves and our habits to attain the ultimate sattva guna. Love and hatred are the two sides. What we want, what we can provide, and how we can look at things is our personal choice. We must choose wisely.
“People find pleasure in hating someone. I think it’s the beginning of kali. If someone has betrayed you, it’s understandable that you hate them. But hating someone you don’t even know… that’s something I will never understand.”
Hatred is the emotion that destroys peace. We must not hate anyone. If someone has ditched us or if someone has done something wrong with us then it is reasonable but, if we are behaving like monsters without any reason then we are falling from the stage of being human.
“A villain can be stylish, and his actions don’t have to be explained. Heroes are boring in comparison, even anti-heroes, as there’s always a justification for their bad actions.”
Heroes are quite boring as they are in a dilemma of saving people and killing villains. Negative people are crystal clear about the terror they want to spread and are widely accepted. That determination overweighs wrongdoings.
