Dialogue[edit]

A.P. Selvarajan: Your cartoons are becoming sharper nowadays.
Thackeray: I am pleased to know that you understand my cartoons.
A.P. Selvarajan: Do me a favor and leave SK Patil alone! That Nijalingappa calls me more than my wife in a day. And Morarji is completely off-limits. You start a fire and I pay the price. Thackeray, this press is not for you alone. It's the breadwinner for countless other families. So please stop trying to shut it down.
Thackeray: If you restrict me from using any of these models... then who am I going to use for my caricatures?
A.P. Selvarajan: Thackeray, I do not doubt your skills. But this press is dependent on advertisements and good relations. Why are you trying to ruin my business? I know you think you're your own boss. But I have superiors to answer to. It's me who has to face the music.
[....]
Thackeray: I am tired of explaining it to you, but you just don't get it-- I... am an artist and not some laborer.
