…they have all the stars in the industry to shoot,” he says.

When asked if he will make peace with the paparazzi, he retorts, “I don’t have a problem with them, but if they have to click me, they have to do it respectfully. They need to make peace with themselves first.”

The 48-year-old was very clear about the fact that he wants photographers to maintain decorum while clicking him. “They have to come I. It can’t become a machi market,” he says, adding that he never had an issue with getting clicked.
