Basically, I am scared of handling bigger stars. Big stars follow certain set patterns that have made them into superstars. If I have to make a film with them, I have to follow that pattern as money and expectations are at stake. And thus, I will not enjoy making that film. As a storyteller, I will have to make adjustments keeping the star in mind. If two people will not be open-minded and excited working together in a project, it will not work. That is why I keep myself in my own small world as I am scared that I won't be able to excite them. Let's talk about your wife? We had a love marriage as my wife is my cousin MM Kreem's wife's sister. She was divorced at the time we got married and had a son. Her being divorced was neither a reason nor a deterrent for me and I proposed to her. She is a strong person, who though seems to be naive in normal situations, acts immediately and perfectly in difficult situations where my mind stops working. My only job is to write and make my films. She is in charge of the family and my finances. I was actually quite clever in choosing her.
