Has OSO surpassed Chak De.. India, like you always wanted?
By long shot. If the film continues to run the way it is right now, by the end of the week, OSO will be the biggest hit of modern times.
With KBC3, Chak De..and OSO, it's been a fantastic year. Plans for 2008?
Next year, I want to do a film for kids, and television. There'll be a 'statement making' film like My Name Is Khan. And endorsements.
What's up at the moment?
Nothing. I don't have any film - I'm unemployed. I'm overpaid, and under worked. I am going to be with my kids, but they seemed bored of me.
Last night, I asked them, 'you want to play?' They said 'yes'. I asked, 'with me?' They said 'no' and went inside and started doing their own things. (laughs)
You talk a lot about Aryan. What about your daughter Suhana. What's she like?
Oh.. she is the most beautiful woman in the world. I'm a little shy about women, so I don't talk about her. Now that I am home, I am <b1>spending more time with her than Aryan. She looks like me - she is 'mini-me'. She is a natural athlete. Last week only, she won her first gold-medal in Taekwondo.
She is the one who looks after me. She gets me tea. She listens to me. She goes to bed at nine and gets up early. And she thinks, my smile is not nice. (Smiles)
Are you any different with Suhana than with Aryan?
When we are together, I am the way I'm with Aryan - sporty and tough. The only difference is, when Aryan is playing with his friends, I can enter the room and ask, 'kya ho raha hai'. But when she is with her girl friends, I don't barge in that room.
Post Chak De.. hockey is almost a part of you. To the extent that at the recent Tag Heuer Precision Polo Cup in Delhi, you even taught the game to eight girls..
I used to play hockey. It felt great when we beat a Khalsa or a Hindu College. I know the passion of people who play hockey. My father played the game too. I was supposed to play at the national level, but got injured and my sporting career came to an end. I brought all that to the film. Sportsmen develop such a great connect with game - when you win, you are more thankful than just being happy about it.
