"Stars like Shah Rukh Khan have a power over the entire nation. One glimpse of him and people go berserk. It always amazed me how it can happen. It can't be created. Either you are born with it or not.
"If I stand at the airport people won't go crazy but if Shah Rukh stands people will because he has a star charisma but I don't have it," the actor said in a promotional interview of "Naam Shabana".

It’s good time for Indian film industry: Manoj Bajpayee
"Common people always love to watch good stories but very few filmmakers used to make films like those. Now there is no shortage of good filmmaker in the industry. That is why these films are getting made and females are in the central character," he added.
