I haven’t done anything in my life other than acting, I haven’t even tried to do it. But the artists involved in acting in this country are not properly evaluated. Artists are given posthumous honors after death, but the artist does not get the respect he deserves to survive. The subject has been bothering me a lot lately. Even then I am an actor, this is my pride, this is my pride. ‘
