I was from such a large family that when I first met my wife I told her: ‘You can go work outside of the house and I’ll stay home and continue making my cartoon strips. Maybe I’ll make some commercials nearby you know I’ll do anything locally but I would love to just stay at home and raise the kids like I did when I was growing up.’
I was making a lot of 8mm home movies since I was twelve making little dramas and comedies with the neighborhood kids.
I think they quite like me when I work because I’m one of the safer directors to back because even if my films don’t bring their costs in back home once they’re shown outside of India they manage to cover the costs.
I think that the reason for my success is that I am really not aspirational. I am inspirational in that the people at home feel like they can really relate to me.
I think a submarine is a very worthwhile weapon. I believe we can defend ourselves with submarines and all our troops back at home. This whole idea that we have to be in 130 countries and 900 bases… is an old-fashioned idea.
I think because my life is so insane and it’s constantly going at 120 miles per hour my favorite thing to do is sit at home in front of the TV and check out.
I still cook at home. A lot of chefs I think don’t cook at home. But I still do I love cooking at home I love having friends.
I take my children everywhere but they always find their way back home.
I spend plenty of time in London and it doesn’t scare me but it’s a lonely place even if you’ve got friends there. My job takes me all around the world meeting lots of interesting people. But I think if I couldn’t get home if I couldn’t get back to what I consider my real life I’d be frightened.
I remember when I came home from the hospital after having my son I wore a Narciso Rodriguez black coat. Then I was using this fragrance that I had created. I walk by that coat and it still smells like that fragrance. It takes you right there.
