Would Farah make a small indie film?

"I thought of making a small film about two girls. The struggle is even more when you want to make a small film. For me it's even more because I am doing the same amount of work, maybe even more because I am trying to break my mould, the money is less and the actresses don't want to work with each other…I thought I might as well make a big movie. I will be giving up a year or two of my life. And I have the resources to make a big film. So what people do is make chotu-chotu films and go up the ladder and get the resources to make a bigger film. I started with the mother of big films. So why am I doing down?"

"How does it matter? I am an actor. I am not here to sell my fairness. I used to laugh actually. I found those people to be very ignorant. They are still stuck in that era, Hero matlab gora – chitta, 6 foot. I am an actor. Give me any part…Robert Downey Jr. was nominated for an Oscar for Tropic Thunder. He played an African-American. Acting has no limits."
