Citações Kapil Dev

„I don’t tell myself I am a hero. People do look up to performers and think of them as heroes…Hero worship in India is too big. It is both right and wrong. It is fair to respect people who have done things that others haven’t but it is not right to traet them as gods.“

—  Kapil Dev
