On breaking ties with the Gandis
Has Sonia Gandhi made an effort to thaw the ice between the two families? There were reports she was concerned about the MNS tirade against you.
I don't know. I suppose being the leader of the party that governs this state, she may have inquired.
Don't you think for emotional reasons, the Gandhi and the Bachchan family should get friendly again?
Well, if you speak of emotions, then one should ask did it [the break-up] have to happen in the first place?
On family values and bahu Aishwarya
You are not an easily forgiving person...
I agree with you. But if you reason with me, I am a very forgiving person. I am an honest person, I do not have needs in life, I can be happy anywhere. And I hope and think I have brought my children up with the right values. I keep telling my son every single day, it doesn't matter if a film does well or not. What matters is a light boy saying 30 years later, 'It was such a pleasure working with you.'
I guess you would want those values to rub off on people who join the family, Ash for example.
Yes. That is why I wanted my son to marry a girl who has those values, who has that tradition, that culture.
