We say things as they are and not how the people expect us to say them.

The truth does not go down well in Bollywood. We’re living in a fake world which is full of appearances, where people don’t want you to say, ‘I’m not okay.’ They don’t give a damn whether you’re a cocaine addict or have an alcohol problem.
