"I feel youngsters should lead changes in society. My movie Baaghi, with Salman Khan, had a message against child prostitution and exploitation.
People have given me so much love and respect. I have to pay them back in some way. You have to have a platform and the power to do something. I wanted a secular platform.
My mom is Muslim and my dad is Hindu. We were brought up to respect all religions. Communal riots pained me. I wanted to do something. So I joined politics.
I have just completed a Punjabi film. There are some Hindi movies in the pipeline too.
I did Bhojpuri like any other language movie. I did Ganga, with Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini. I have signed Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu's Bhojpuri film too.
I am a commerce graduate. I was interested in business. My father made movies. My mother always said that the greatest gift a parent can give a child is education. She insisted that girls should be financially independent even before marriage.
