By the way, we learn something from everyone. And when I learn from anyone, I give him the status of a teacher. By the way, life has been the greatest teacher in my life. It has taught me to face all kinds of troubles and challenges.
No one can take the place of mother, father, relatives or friends. They teach and support us, whatever be the circumstances. By the way, I keep trying to learn something from everyone.
I cannot give all the credit of learning to one person alone: When we learn from others we become better human beings. The question is, if I have learnt a very big or important thing from one single person. I cannot give a reply to it. I cannot give all the credit of learning to one person alone. There were many people who taught me a lot of things. No doubt there must have been a big change in my life. Still I cannot give all the credit to any one person. It will be unfair.
Because of all of them today I am Akshay Khanna: In childhood, the school teacher had a lot of impact. When we reached college, the college teacher had an impact. We learnt from all including directors, writers, choreographers when we came into the world of film. Because of all of them today I am Akshay Khanna. I am not there because of any one of them. The good thing that happened to me is that since childhood, there has not been a person to impose knowledge on me. Everyone used to keep his opinion. I used to have a counter opinion to it. In the end, I gained by learning from the opinions of people.
