- Silsila (1981): ‘Main aur meri tanhayi, aksar yeh baatein karte hai … tum hoti toh kaisa hota … tum yeh kehti, tum woh kehti, tum is baat pe hairaan hoti, tum us baat pe kitni hasti … tum hoti toh aaisa hota, tum hoti toh waisa hota … main aur meri tanhayi, aksar yeh baatein karte hai’
- Shahenshah (1988): ‘Rishte me to hum tumhare baap lagte hain, naam hai Shahenshah.’
- Pink (2016): “These boys must realise..no ka matlab no hota hai. Use bolne wali ladki koi parichit ho, friend ho, girlfriend ho, koi sex worker ho ya aapki apni biwi hi kyu na ho,’no means ‘no’ and when someone says so, you stop”
102 Not Out (2018): Aulaad nalayak nikle toh usse bhool jaana chahiye … sirf uska bachpan Yaad rakhna chahiye
