“Rohit Shetty And Sajid Khan Should Stop Making Films,” Says Shashank Arora
What is keeping you busy these days?
I am finishing writing a script, which has been a long time coming. My ukulele is keeping me busy too, because I am composing music for a film I acted in, Moothon. It is my first Malayalam experiment.
What is your biggest achievement?
The fact that I have been able to keep the perspective that family is more important than everything else in the world.
What is the one skill every man should have?
I think as a trait, every man should be gentle and sensitive. In terms of skills, I think every man should clean his own house and make his own food.
Which one thing should all men know about women?
Men have no idea what it takes to be a woman in today’s world. They begin to think that they do, but they don’t.
What is your dominant flaw?
I am extremely impulsive. Especially when it comes to my career, I am not a planner at all. I wish I schemed more.
The Joey Conundrum: sex or food?
Sex. Every day. They go hand in hand for me. Sex and then food, then sex, then food, then sex…
Have you ever woken up the next morning and forgotten your date’s name?
No, man. I woke up the next morning and didn’t know the name of my date, so there was no question of forgetting it.
What is your favourite place on earth?
I love Montreal for its jazz and art scene. But, more importantly, it has to be home.
What irritates you most about people?
The fact that we are always rushing from one thing to the other, even me, without ever appreciating what we have right now.
What is the scariest thing you have ever done?
I tried to buy weed in a country where I couldn’t speak the language and almost went to jail.
Cats or dogs?
Dogs. I used to have a daschund.
One film you wish you had been a part of?
Amitabh Bachchan’s Don. There is only one Don.
Pick three people you are better than as an actor.
[Laughs] Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar. When you are going for it, might as well go for the top of the pile, right?
Which Bollywood film-makers, according to you, should stop making films?
Rohit Shetty and Sajid Khan.
Which actor is in desperate need of a stylist?
I am not being humble, but me.
Which is the last Hindi film you walked out of?
Rascals. I have no idea why.
A MESSAGE FROM YOU TO WHOEVER IS READING THIS.
We need to stand together. We are being divided all over again, based on retarded things like gender or sexual preference. This world is dying, the corporations are greedy, cinema is being made for people to forget that they are being looted. It doesn’t matter whether you eat beef or pork, we need to stick together. Also, we need to let Pakistani actors work in our industry, or else we are the biggest hypocrites.
