'As a fan myself, I'll think twice before writing or maligning anything to my favourite movie star. TV is an exception here. Viewers can easily connect themselves with the actors. Besides, with the help of media, we can connect easily with our fans. This connectivity doesn't exist in Bollywood. I'm really overwhelmed by their love.' (Tellycafe, 17-07-10)
