Is he really as self-righteous and sanctimonious as he sounds sometimes? Or is he just a simple, "innocent" guy (as his friend Rajkumar Hirani puts it), perhaps trying to sound more intelligent than he really is?

What is more upsetting to me is that scores of Indians have proven him right by being so violently intolerant.
