In an interview with Indian Express, the actor stated, "I don’t think any whiskey bottle, or an actor has an expiry date. I say this while giving respect to both, the statement isn’t derogatory at all. Because I feel things are here to stay and if they are, let them stay, there is no harm in it. As long as you don’t overkill or impose yourself on something. You should not do something that doesn’t suit your age. A person like me cannot even think of retirement."
