“"The first thing we have to realise is that rape is not a sexual crime. It is a violent crime intended to destroy a person. What aspect of the Delhi rape case was sexual? It was so brutal and violent that it ended up killing a person. This is not to be viewed as one isolated incident of rape, and we cannot let this be the end. While women are feeling outraged, it is men who need to stand up and say this is not the way men behave. What a man does is stand up and defend a woman, come what may."”
“"I care a lot about animals. If I see an injured or sick animal I feel I can help it in some way and I do that. The fact is that there are dogs and cats and all kinds of animals roaming around the streets. People buy costly dogs and cats either as a fashion statement or just to keep them like toys. Once they get bored, they throw them out of the house. That is a very horrible thing to do."”
“"I got twice as lucky. I've two dads. And three parents instead of two. My dads love me. They've made me what I am."”
“"While it's certainly flattering to be called a gay icon, I feel that it's a tag I have not earned. I have always been a supporter of gay rights, but the truth is that I have not really done anything significant for the LGBT community. There are many people who are far more deserving than me."”
“"Aamir is very particular that he must do the right thing. But he has always said that I have to learn by myself - make mistakes and learn from it and when you succeed yourself, it will be better."”
“"Their agenda was not fighting or hatred. Their concern was to see me okay. They were incredible that way. My parents were always one unit for me. If I am not shattered about my past today, the credit goes to them."”
