• In 2001, he gave comment on a soft drink commercial starring Katrina Kaif, “How pakao is Katrina in the Slice ad, kairi pakadti hai aur vo aam ban jata hai… Angoor do toh shayad Wine banjayegi.” As the comment was blown out of proportion on social media, newspaper, and electronic media, he explained himself by saying that, “My comment has nothing to do with Katrina. It’s just a homourous observation on the creatives of the ad. It’s called sense of humour.”
