Matlab aisa bhi nahi ki hum chhapai ki machine ban jaye. Raat ko ge film hatam ki, subah kishi aur set pe hai. Theek hai, aap bhookhe hote hain toh overeating ho jati hai. Pata hi nahi chala kaam kab kitna speed pakad liya. Kaam mil gaya toh maine bhi dhyan nahi diya. Main Carte Gaia, Carte Gaia. (I was working too much. Now I feel like I have to take it slow. Because I need gaps between two films to prepare. I shouldn’t be a printing machine. That I’m on one set at night and on the next one in the morning. It’s okay, when you’re hungry , you tend to overeat. I didn’t realize when work picked up speed. I kept working, so I kept doing it,” Pankaj said in the interview.

Now, I will do only 3-4 instead. That way, I will maintain the quality and be able to bring something new to these characters),” added Pankaj in the same interview.
