Quotes

  • [In 2014, on the topic of casting couch in the 1960s] You've no idea how Dharmendra and Sanjay Khan were blackmailed by senior actresses when they were newcomers. I'm very grateful to Nanda that she was extremely gracious and decent with me.
  • Rajesh Khanna recommended me for the films which he couldn't do like Jaanwar Aur Insan, Mr. Romeo, Basera. He gave me Alag Alag. He wanted me in Prem Kahani. I have highest regards for him. He and Sanjeev Kumar were much more versatile than other heroes from 1970 to 2000 period.
