Personal Quote:

I don't think a writer or director can be credited with success. It all depends on timing. Shahrukh Khan is such a huge star because he's doing the films that suit him. I loved him in _Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995)_, I think it's a very progressive film. Every star is a product of his time. See more »

Trivia:

Was producing a film titled " Nimmi" directed by Taufiq Ahmed. It was about a young girl trapped in a forest. He shelved the film. This was 2004. See more »
