The people who accuse us of being macho in Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, I can throw the same accusation at you saying that you laugh when you called me (my character)’Ye adrak hai, kahi se bhi badh raha hai.’ You think it’s a joke and it doesn’t hurt a man? I’m sure men will be equally sensitive about it.”
He concluded by saying, “Having said that, I don’t feel anything about it… I don’t think we should get hypersensitive. This is largely a Western concept that tries to make ‘so perfect’, but it’s not. Men and women are flawed in what they do.”
