“Everywhere there is a bad apple, but you can’t count all of us as such. People today think Bollywood is a bad place, but we have made some good films here. When I did Border, I was part of one of them. I have been part of many good and social kind movies.

It pains me to say that we have this stigma but 99% of us don’t. We don’t get high all day and we don’t do bad work. We are associated with good work. Bollywood music and our movie stories have really connected India with the rest of the world. So Yogi ji, if you take the initiative and talk about it with our beloved Prime Minister, it will bring about a significant change,” he said.
