There have definitely been phases of the National, many years ago, where we did party, and various people, in their own way, fell off the wagon.
My natural hair is jet black. I used to have it down to my bum. And I went through a phase of being obsessed with fake tan. So from the age of 14 to 16, I looked like an Apache Indian!
I am over that phase where any kind of story would bother me, be it personal or professional. I just laugh it off and forget about it.
I used my television phase to save myself as an actor for the bigger screen.
As for Bollywood, actors are no longer typecast there and I'm happy to be in that phase where the industry is evolving for the better.
The next phase of the journey is to move from speculation to actual use cases - people getting into Bitcoin because they want to use it.
Every revolution, bloody or not, has two phases. The first phase is defined by the struggle for freedom, the second by the struggle for power and revenge on the votaries of the ancien regime.
Every person goes through a bad phase. Amitabh Bachchan and Salman Khan, too, had a rough phase in their careers. In my case, it was unfortunate that my personal problems came up at a time when I took a break to rejuvenate myself.
Colonialism is known in its primitive form, that is to say, by the permanent settling of repressive foreign powers, with an army, services, policies. This phase has known cruel colonial occupations which have lasted 300 years in Indonesia.
I don't think about stardom anymore. I'm way past that phase.
