When the camera is on, I am an actor; otherwise, I am an ordinary person.
I have seen several hardships since I was a child. As a result, I don't perceive things the way most people do.

Earlier in my career, there may have been compulsions for accepting films for money.
I have seen some films which were bad or trashy been given four stars. From that day on, I don't believe in reviews.
