On travelling with drugs:
I remember that I was so addicted that once I travelled with 1kg heroine hidden in my shoes My two sisters were also with me on the same flight.

On when he finally realised he needed help:
There was an instance when I came home high, had alcohol and then went to bed. When I asked my servant to get me something to eat, his response shocked me. He said, “Baba aap do din baad khana kha rage hain.” I looked at myself in the mirror and felt ki main 100% marne wala hoon. That was when I aksed my father for help.
On the reason why he started taking drugs:
On being convicted for the illegal possession of firearm:
That AK-56 was given to me by a producer because I was fonod of guns and hunting. I thought I would take it to Khandala, thoda chala vala ke phek dunga. Ie kept it in the car dicky and forgot about it and went to Mauritius.
On Ranbir Kapoor chasing him:
Ranbir wants to spend days and weeks with me, but I can’t spend more than half an hour with anybody. I have been trying to avoid him, it is a difficult role for him to play.
