Buy Inclined

There are two kinds of people... There are the dreamers who go and buy, and there are the doers who go and make. And I've always recognized that.

- Paula Hawkins

Own Everybody

There is a latent talent in everyone. I am nothing extraordinary just because I happen to be an actor. Everybody is extraordinary in his own way.

- Pawan Kalyan

Living Brought

I'm totally comfortable today with the success that Omar and 'The Wire' have brought me - living with that character, being recognized and remembered for that character.

Back Got
