Personal Quote:

If the artiste lives up to that image, I'm satisfied. In Chakravyuh, Kaka has interpreted his role beautifully. I will say this much. If the film flops, I am responsible for it. Khanna has performed very well. He gives me what performance I want very easily within an hour, whereas other actors be it Amol Palekar, Zarina, Amitabh, Vinod Mehra, Moushmi Chaterjee, Vidya Sinha, Jeetendra and others ...
