Stories are there around you, be it epics like Mahabharat, Ramayan or real-life incidences, there are stories everywhere. You need to represent it in your unique style.” He further added what makes him write masterpieces which he did with RRR, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and his other works. “You have to create something out of nothing.
