Personal Quote:

We're yet to make inroads into the West and the way Chinese cinema is made. I mean, long before Ang Lee's 'Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon', Bruce Lee had made an impact on the Western audience with his 'Enter The Dragon'. Indian cinema is yet to make that kind of impact.

Starred in Tigmanshu Dhulia's shelved 2006 period drama " Ghulaami". Co starring Sunny Deol and Sameera Reddy. See more »
