In a recent report by DNA, the 50-year-old actor was quoted as saying, “I don’t want to be a villain. I believe in entertaining the audience. I like playing the hero, a good man who’s memory people carry back home. If I cannot play it in real life, at least I can play such a man on screen,” he added.

The Dabangg actor, who recently landed in a soup for his ‘raped woman’ analogy, further said that he wants to do inspiring stories for the youth to be “strong, become men and gladiators in real life.”
