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? Whatever he is, I do not think that his latest rant about rising intolerance in India is anything more than a foot-in-the-mouth moment. What is more upsetting to me is that scores of Indians have proven him right by being so violently intolerant.
