Some dialogs that grab attention
- That film will tell us how politics is done?
- This is the world of men and we stand by a woman.
- It has just spread its wings, it is yet to fly.
- Today, the way you have insulted me in a full meeting, the same Kauravas had done Draupadi. She had also won the battle of power and I will win this battle of power as well. Because Jaya is another name of Mahabharata.
- These battles are for the people, for their self-respect. You can fall in this battle, you may get injured. But now we cannot back down.
- One thing to be remembered… if I think of you as a mother… you will find a place in my heart and if I think of you as just a woman then you will…
