Unfortunately my films are also getting poor results and a person has to work, no matter where he is.
When I started leving in Toronto, I got a Canadian passport. In between that, two films were left for release . After the two movies got released it become a big superhit . I told him that I was going back because I had received more films offer. Then I never thought people got a hold of it , it was just a travel document . I just pay my taxes , and I am the highest tax payer”.
