Brian Lara
It was funny because on the day that I joined the club, the newspaper that broke the news was one that people don’t always trust or believe. Then, when I signed, and there were pictures of me and Sir Alex Ferguson, people believed it.

Mary Whitehouse
If there’s one thing Nawaz sir taught me, it’s how to just relax. He’s not your method actor who will ask not to be disturbed on set if there’s a serious scene to shoot. He just comes and does his thing.
Nidhhi Agerwal
I have a request to make to Pawan Kalyan sir on behalf of all his fans. He will definitely succeed whichever field he chooses. But we fans can’t bear it if he says he won’t do films anymore. We will always be hopeful that he will do a film someday.
Nithiin
I phoned this number and said, Please, sir, I want to be an actor.

Rajini sir has always been a part of my life from childhood. And I entered into filmmaking because I was influenced by his films.

Nobody would dare to show Rajini sir in bad light through a film.

You know, I got kids. I got sons, and I try to tell them, ‘Look, man, when you in the car and you get pulled over, hands on the steering wheel. ‘Yes, sir. No sir.’ Your job is to either wind up in jail, so I can come get you, or be able to pull off. That’s your job.’
Rakim
Of course I don’t expect people to call me Sir Chris. That’d be embarrassing.
Chris Hoy

Sid Sriram
My great grandfather from my father’s side, Sir Akbar Hydari, was the prime minister of the Nizam of Hyderabad. He was instrumental in setting up the Osmania university. His wife set up the Hydari club for women so that they could play tennis, and she also set up the first girls’ school in Hyderabad.
Aditi Rao Hydari
It’s spelled, like, S-E-R-G. I always thought it would be funny if I called my son ‘Sir.’ Like calling your daughter ‘Ma’am,’ or something like that.
Pamela Adlon
I am indeed fortunate to work with some reputed directors like Balaji Sakthivel, Sekhar Kammula, and KV Anand sir. Each one of them has a different style, and every day is a learning experience for me.
Tamannaah

Kiara Advani
In my eyes, I will never be up there with the Sir Steve Redgraves and the Sir Chris Hoys of this world. It’s not something that drives me; I just enjoy going to the Olympic Games. Just to be mentioned in the same breath as those people is an honour for me. I don’t ever think about those kind of things.
Bradley Wiggins
To have a childhood surrounded by people like Sir Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh sounds glitzy, but for years I wanted to repress it. I couldn’t take that kind of power and success.
Michael Korda
Working with Hirani sir is a big thing for me. At least in my resume, I’ll have a mention of his name in my filmography.
Karishma Tanna
I had read the 'Mahabharat' thoroughly even before meet

I had read the ‘Mahabharat’ thoroughly even before meeting B. R. Chopra Sir. I knew the most important character was Duryodhan. Without him the ‘Mahabharat’ would not have happened. I straight away went and asked for that character itself.
Puneet Issar
I’ve had to deal with everything but everyone has helped me, including Sir Alex Ferguson, to get through. George Best was a good friend of mine. We loved each other, we both knew where we were coming from.
Paul Gascoigne
As for song recordings – well, that’s something that just happens. I’ve been working with music directors like Harris Jeyaraj sir, A. R. Rahman sir, and the experience is great.

There is nothing, Sir, too little for so little a creature as man. It is by studying little things that we attain the great art of having as little misery and as much happiness as possible.

Rajkummar Rao
When I thought of writing for Rajini sir, I told myself it will be a really cool character with a very happy-go-lucky attitude. We took such a character and placed him in a strong story, and I believe, as a combination, it has worked wonders.

Sir Alex Ferguson already has his place in the history books; he is definitely one of the best coaches ever.

Pray look better, Sir… those things yonder are no giants, but windmills.

I met Rajini sir after ‘Jigarthanda,’ and he said he liked my film. He told me I could approach him whenever I had a good idea. I had never thought he would listen to scripts from new directors. After the meeting, I wondered, ‘Should I take his words seriously or not? Should I write something?’
Karthik Subbaraj
I took my mother-in-law to Madame Tussaud’s Chamber of Horrors, and one of the attendants said: ‘Keep her moving sir; we’re stock-taking.’

I have worked very hard to shed away my chocolate boy image in order to get a tough look for this action entertainer. I am confident of my success and would love to dedicate the same to Director Balachandar sir.
Uday Kiran
Sir Richard Branson is probably the best communicator ever. He was an inspiration for me – contrary to some reports, we’ve never done business together, although we did discuss an aviation venture very early on. I don’t think easyJet competes with Virgin – we’re in different areas.
Stelios Haji-Ioannou
I hope ‘Tiger 3’ gets made because it’s a great franchise to be a part of. I hope I get repeated in ‘Tiger 3’ also because I feel that to work with Salman Khan Sir is the biggest thing ever.

Rahman sir has a sweet sense of humour. He chuckles a lot and is very friendly.
Chinmayi
Sir, I wish to understand the true principles of the Government. I wish them carried out. I ask nothing more.

Kenneth Branagh
Sir Alex Ferguson sent me a letter wishing me good luck before my fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. He also sent me a United shirt, signed by all of the players. It was a really nice touch and typical of the man who has always made himself available to managers in this country whenever they’ve needed advice.
Ricky Hatton
A blind bloke walks into a shop with a guide dog. He picks the Dog up and starts swinging it around his head. Alarmed, a shop assistant calls out: ‘Can I help, sir?’ ‘No thanks,’ says the blind bloke. ‘Just looking.’

Justice, sir, is the great interest of man on earth. It is the ligament which holds civilized beings and civilized nations together.

A losing trade, I assure you, sir: literature is a drug.

The Conservatives over the years have done a great deal, from Sir John A, to Diefenbaker, and others.
Brian Mulroney
When you deal with a comedian who has a specific act, you can’t hold ’em back. You got to work with ’em, dude. What you think, I’m just gonna do what’s on the page, say ‘yes sir, no sir’? I’m creatively beyond that.
Pauly Shore
There have been many gay knights in the past – like Sir Noel Coward or Sir John Gielgud.
Ian Mckellen
In ’84 there was Raheem, Slim Jukebox, and Sir Rap-A-Lot. Those were the first three members of the Geto Boys with DJ Ready Red. By ’85 it was Prince Johnny C, Slim Jukebox, Bushwick Bill, and DJ Ready Red. By ’89 it was Scarface, Willie D, Bushwick Bill, and Ready Red.
Bushwick Bill
Anything to do with Anurag Basu sir is always special and interesting.
Sanya Malhotra
I was 17 years old and missed many things about Barcelona, particularly the food. Fortunately, Sir Alex Ferguson realised my situation and helped me to grow. For me, the gaffer was like a second father.
Gerard Pique
Anurag Sir is someone I have always looked up to and ho

Anurag Sir is someone I have always looked up to and hoped to work with, like many other actors. It’s a tremendous opportunity to be collaborating with him on my first film; I really feel fortunate. His conviction in me is very valuable.
Sobhita Dhulipala
My favorite actor is Sir Ben Kingsley – nobody is as good as him, in my opinion. I think he’s so good as an artist.
Josh Peck
Anurag sir and I have had a beautiful journey as human beings.
Vicky Kaushal
‘Tum Jo Mile’ came as a surprise. Vivek and Kumaar sir, who has written the song, sent me the track just to listen. I was in London at the time for my world tour. I heard the song, and I fell in love with it instantly.
Armaan Malik
Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.
Abraham Lincoln
Rajini sir gave me an opportunity to work with him because he liked my work, especially my style of narration and dialogues. Now, I can’t go out and make something very different just to please him. He wanted me to make ‘Petta’ the way I want it and with my sensibilities intact.
Karthik Subbaraj
Not many people know this but my team in England is Manchester United. Bobby Charlton, Denis Law, George Best, all great players. We created a bond when we played each other and I still speak to Bob from time to time, though I can’t get used to calling him ‘Sir Bobby.’
Eusebio
I really love the Olympics: Daley Thompson’s back-flip, Derek Redmond’s father helping him finish the 400m after his hamstring snapped at the 1992 Games in Barcelona, Carl Lewis, Michael Johnson, Sir Steve Redgrave – childhood memories are flooded with these moments and idols.
Giles Duley
I have an unconscious burglar living in my mind: If I read something, it’s mine. I can read Middle English stories, Geoffrey Chaucer or Sir Thomas Malory, but once I start moving in the direction of contemporary fantasy, my mind begins to take over.
David Eddings
I took over from Sir Alex, and it was always going to take time, whoever was in charge.
David Moyes
What, sir, would the people of the earth be without woman? They would be scarce, sir, almighty scarce.
Mark Twain
I’d love to work with Sir Anthony Hopkins, but if that doesn’t happen, I’d sneak on to a film set and watch him at work. He is a compelling actor.
Marc Warren
Sir one more comment like that and I will strangle you with my microphone wire!
Adam Sandler
Akshay Kumar is like a guru. He made a mark in the industry without any godfather. Akshay sir is a superstar only because of his hard work and talent.
Arfi Lamba
Sir Alex Ferguson was a genuinely nice man. We met many times and even had dinner together on a few occasions. But woe to the person who threatened or bothered Manchester United in any way. Then Ferguson would not spare his venom. I know, because he often aimed that venom at me.
Sven-Goran Eriksson
Could we have entered into the mind of Sir Isaac Newton, and have traced all the steps by which he produced his great works, we might see nothing very extraordinary in the process.
Joseph Priestley
Like every other teenage girl, I was a great fan of Hrithik sir. This childhood crush was not like others though – the love for him was so deep in my heart that my boarding school hostel room was filled with his posters which I didn’t let any one touch. My heart was broken when I saw him getting married.
Shakti Mohan
Sir Rosevelt is a little more of a persona, and we dress up, three-piece Tom Ford suits, and it’s a little more refined, visually.
Zac Brown
If you notice, the characters in ‘PKP 1’ & ‘2’ and ‘SKTKS’ are relatable. I think writer Rahul Modi and Luv sir create a real world.
Sunny Singh
Wellcome Collection will be an exciting place in which to explore themes of human well-being, starting with the powerful collections of Sir Henry Wellcome.
Mark Walport
Drama is action, sir, action and not confounded philosophy.
Luigi Pirandello
No sir, I don’t have a crystal ball, but I do have common sense.
Gabe Kapler
You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.
Samuel Johnson
What is a policeman made of? He, of all men, is once the most needed and the most unwanted. He’s a strangely nameless creature who is ‘Sir’ to his face and ‘Fuzz’ to his back.
Paul Harvey
Of course David Moyes is going to come under scrutiny because he’s taken over from a legend in Sir Alex Ferguson and they’ve made their worst start to a season in 24 years. But we mustn’t take away credit from what West Brom did. Few teams go to Old Trafford and dominate the ball and carve out chances the way they did.
Chris Kamara
Sir Alex Ferguson is the most impressive person I’ve met in terms of charisma and achievement.
Angus Deayton
I’ve had a great life. And I want that one more thing, to be up in a Virgin Galactic spaceship with Sir Richard Branson.
Wally Funk
Without Nambiar sir’s guidance I would not have been able to achieve what I did for the country.
P. T. Usha
If we are going to win games, we need 11 fit players. Sir Alex Ferguson does not pick half-fit players.
Nasser Hussain
Obviously, replacing Sir Alex Ferguson was never going to be easy – not for him or for anyone. Although I was with him for only a few months, I’ll always be grateful, as he played a key role in my move to United. He was the one who called me, who welcomed me, and the one who gave me the confidence to come here.
Juan Mata
When I check in at the Encore, they’re like, ‘Welcome back, sir.’ I’m back home, it’s like my second home.
Lil Jon
There is no private house in which people can enjoy the

There is no private house in which people can enjoy themselves so well as at a capital tavern… No, Sir; there is nothing which has yet been contrived by man by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn.
Samuel Johnson
Yes sir, I am a tortured man for all seasons, as they say, and I have powerful friends in high places. Birds sing where I walk, and children smile when they see me coming.
Hunter S. Thompson
I really don’t remember my first meeting with Arif Sir.
Jwala Gutta
When I came into the acting profession, it was quite hierarchical. You didn’t sit at the same table as the leading actor. Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud… these were very, very intimidating and powerful people.
Helen Mirren
It’s sad when a woman writing fantasy in the United States in the 1970s has less actual feminist cred than Sir Walter Scott.
Judith Tarr
Was I believer in Enron Corporation? Yes, sir, I was.
Jeffrey Skilling
Sir, I am no sycophant or worshipper of power anywhere.
Benjamin F. Wade
I also found being called Sir rather silly.
Harold Pinter
The very idea of true patriotism is lost, and the term has been prostituted to the very worst of purposes. A patriot, sir! Why, patriots spring up like mushrooms!
Robert Walpole
The first time I retired, only Sir Alex Ferguson and I knew that the last league game of the 2010-11 season against Blackpool was to be my final game at Old Trafford. I was a little bit sad, but I am not one for tears. The end of a career comes to us all, and there is not a lot you can do about that.
Paul Scholes
I, sir, I just like to work. I’m humble.
Bruce McCulloch
I was very sure that in the journey of Bigg Boss’ house, Salman sir’s feedback is what is going to make me even stronger. So, I took everything in a positive stride and I can say that his feedback was the crucial contribution to my journey towards success.
Rubina Dilaik
I know not, sir, whether Bacon wrote the works of Shakespeare, but if he did not, it seems to me that he missed the opportunity of his life.
James M. Barrie
I was not the producer of ‘Vaanaprastham’ earlier. The first producers backed out when they became doubtful about the monetary benefits. I do not blame them. But as an actor, I wanted to make the film. So, I told Shaji sir that I would produce the film. It was only then we started shooting.
Mohanlal
It’s nice to have a few names. I use a few names myself. I use a few different surnames. I call myself James sometimes. I actually use my mother’s name as a professional name. But if someone calls me Mr. Murphy or Mr. Gillen, I don’t like that. I don’t like being called ‘mister,’ and I don’t like being called ‘sir.’
Aidan Gillen
I’m someone who likes to question things that are put in front of me, I like to think I’m someone who asks ‘why sir?’ not a ‘yes sir.’
Austin Aries
I was a quiet kid. I was very introverted, believe it or not. I never spoke above a whisper. I was always, ‘Yes sir.’ I was raised that way.
Howie Long
Anant Nag and Vishuvardhan sir are two of the best actors with whom I have worked.
Suhasini Maniratnam
A fan once stopped me outside a theatre and gave me as a gift a signed photograph of Sir Laurence Olivier. It was strange, but nice, too.
David Alan Basche
In this industry, people want a ‘yes sir’ attitude. But ad men usually have a chip on their shoulders. We have more money and are more successful. We call everyone by the first name. My assistants call me Vivek but I don’t care.
Vivek Agnihotri
I am grateful to Rahman sir. There is no way I can repay the graces he has extended to me by making me sing his compositions.
Chinmayi
Yes, sir, I was in the processing room watching them actually process the film.
Abraham Zapruder
Sir Rodin convinced my parents to have me committed; they are all in Paris to arrange it.
Camille Claudel
Working with Chiranjeevi sir, I realized the professionalism and attitude they used work with. It’s just so contagious. When such a personality is doing that, everyone around, too, would do that out of respect. Work was far more efficient, smoother.
Kajal Aggarwal
The thing I liked most about Puri Sir is that he was so relaxed on the sets. So everyone else was also relaxed. Since there was no stress, one worked better.
Catherine Tresa
I have great respect for him. Sir Alex has won many trophies and is the most important manager in the world.
Roberto Mancini
In our comic cons and interviews, they’re always asking him questions, of course, because people love Jean-Luc Picard. They love Sir Patrick Stewart. But he always likes to stop everyone and go, Wait, but these new characters, I can’t wait for you to meet these new people.’ He very much always tries to make space for us.
Isa Briones
I’ve the highest respect and regards for Shankar sir. He has taken Tamil cinema to a new level. I would have loved to work with him, but there are some date hassles.
Vijay
Will you tell me, ‘Oh, painting is a special art, whereas anyone can write prose passably well’? Can he, indeed? … Can you, sir? Nay, believe me, you are either an archangel or a very bourgeois gentleman indeed if you admit to having spoken English prose all your life without knowing it.
Arthur Quiller-Couch
I went to a military school, so I’m always talking like ‘Yes, sir,’ or ‘No, ma’am.’ I was doing that even before military school, so I’ve always had it, I guess.
Larry Fitzgerald
Rahman sir was the first music director I met and I was very nervous after meeting him. I made him listen to some of my songs nervously and he told me that my tone is good but I required working on the maturity of my voice with respect to my age. That was the golden advice I got from him.
Jubin Nautiyal
I had really good experience working with Ritesh Batra

I had really good experience working with Ritesh Batra and Nawaz sir. It was a huge thing for me to work with Nawaz sir because he is my favorite actor.
Sanya Malhotra
I still find it a bit surreal that Sir Elton John can call Troy Deeney from Chelmsley. It’s quite entertaining but a bit surreal.
Troy Deeney
Look at the greatest dressers in history – Philadelphia socialite and diplomat Angier Biddle Duke, Sir Anthony Eden, Fred Astaire, the Duke of Windsor, John F. Kennedy, and Gary Cooper – they all sport the well placed pocket adornment.
Roger Stone
If you don’t have my army supplied, and keep it supplied, we’ll eat your mules up, sir.
William Tecumseh Sherman
Vita Sackville-West is one of my favorite female icons. She was a writer and a prolific gardener, but she also had a relationship with Virginia Woolf, and she was married to Sir Harold Nicolson. She was a woman who lived outside of norms.
Gwendoline Christie
Sir Derek Jacobi has been an inspiration to so many actors and audiences throughout his brilliant career. To see him in Shakespeare is an event in itself.
Kenneth Branagh
There is a myth that Rahman sir only works at night. He works through the day and night, so it depends what time slot you end up working with him. Besides nights, I have sung for him in the morning and at noon, too. I think he’s the first composer to work at night, and that’s why it’s spoken about so much.
Chinmayi
No, sir, I’m not saying that charming, witty and warm copy won’t sell. I’m just saying I’ve seen thousands of charming, witty campaigns that didn’t sell.
Rosser Reeves
The broad outlines of the Double Cross deception have been known since 1972, when Sir John Masterman, the former chairman of the double agent committee, controversially published his account of the operation in defiance of official secrecy.
Ben Macintyre
I have been a few times to Manchester United to have a look. I got a tour and spoke with Sir Alex Ferguson. Being a 15-year-old and being able to talk with him is great!
Andreas Pereira
Manchester United is a world-famous club, and yet if you say, ‘Manchester United,’ then immediately you think of Sir Alex Ferguson. To have achieved so much and have so much importance at such a big club is extremely rare.
Frank Rijkaard
By the time I was 14, I had seen only three Tamil films – ‘Anjali,’ ‘Bombay,’ and ‘Puthiya Mugam.’ And I loved the music in the films. When I found out Rahman sir was the man behind the music, I made up my mind that I wanted to sing for him.
Chinmayi
I come from a small village called Murud Janjira near Alibaug. I started doing theatre right from school days and later joined the Sir J. J. Institute of Applied Art, after which I joined an advertising agency.
Nana Patekar
I was brought up in a household with sir and ma’am.
Darrell Issa
Many, many years ago, I stood on the stage and told bad jokes and did Sophie Tucker as an impersonation, and nobody looked up; and suddenly, I looked down and said, ‘Sir, I’m getting fed up with you. Either you watch, or I’m going to suck your neck,’ or words to that effect, and suddenly people started to laugh.
Don Rickles
I thought Anurag sir would be strict, and I had certain kind of perception about him, but he was warm and interactive.
Sobhita Dhulipala
Akshay sir is very good at comedy. He has so much energy in him. He not only expresses with his dialogues but also his body. He is like Mr Bean.
Diljit Dosanjh
Rajini sir’s character in ‘Petta’ is inspired from the same name from Tamil film ‘Mullum Malarum.’
Karthik Subbaraj
I always said as a kid that I’d like to play for United, and I once spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson about it. We chatted for around 20 minutes, and I told him that my dream was to come here to Manchester United.
Alexis Sanchez
I grew up idolising Rajinikanth, and I’ve always wanted to see him in a certain way. When I knew I was going to write for Rajini sir, I wanted to show him in the most stylish way and bring back his mannerisms and machismo.
Karthik Subbaraj
Faith, sir, we are here today, and gone tomorrow.
Aphra Behn
The speed at which cinema is changing, the definition of hero is also changing. Even a big superstar like Aamir sir plays the role of a father. There’s action genre, where you have to show body and do stunts, so you may call that a hero.
Rajkummar Rao
It is all about experience. When you are 7-8 years old, you start playing school cricket and score runs; my coaches, from school level to Rahul Dravid Sir now, all those small, small things – the experiences make a difference.
Prithvi Shaw
While I have got to work with someone as experienced as Ajay Devgn sir in my first film, it is exciting to work with a promising actor like Meezaan in my second.
Pranitha Subhash
Actually Maddy is my name. But I feel that whenever you address somebody, there needs to be certain amount of dignity rendered to it – irrespective of whether it’s a film star or somebody you are fond of. I find it very pleasing when somebody refers to me as ‘Mr. Madhavan’ or ‘Sir’ or ‘Mr. Maddy.’
R. Madhavan
Sir Terry Pratchett – he was knighted in 2009, and on him it looked earned rather than entitled – wrote about dragons, wizards, turtles, witches, time-travelling monks, and suitcases with legs.
Nick Harkaway
It was a pleasure to work alongside Sir David Attenborough and Hans Zimmer.
Santan Dave
We are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of Nature has placed in our power… the battle, sir, is not to the strong alone it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.
Patrick Henry
There is a lot one can learn from Akshay sir, if one needs to learn punctuality and how to shoot in time, one should learn that from Akshay Kumar.
Ammy Virk
Sir, allusion has been made, in an early stage of this debate, to the history of the excitement which once pervaded a considerable part of the country, in reference to the transportation of the mails on the Lord’s day.
Caleb Cushing
He is really something. I love him. He is Sir Arsene Wenger.
Jurgen Klopp
I loathe all political parties, which I regard as inven

I loathe all political parties, which I regard as inventions of the devil. My favourite prime minister was Sir Alec Douglas-Home, not because he was on the Right, but because he spent a year in office without, on his own admission, doing a damned thing.
George MacDonald Fraser
I am a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan sir, so I also know what it feels like to be a fan.
Kartik Aaryan
Nobody’s ever called me Sir Richard. Occasionally in America, I hear people saying Sir Richard and think there’s some Shakespearean play taking place. But nowhere else anyway.
Richard Branson
Working with Anurag sir was always a dream. He is the person I started my journey with.
Vicky Kaushal
I get a lot of fan mail addressed to Bilbo and sometimes Sir Bilbo – it’s hardly ever addressed to Ian Holm, in fact. My business manager drafts the replies, and then I pop in to the office and sign them, ‘Bilbo!’
Ian Holm
It was a completely different experience working on ‘Chhichhore’ with Nitesh sir. The way he narrates and the way he directs actors is completely unique. He has that rare quality of blending a great story with finely-etched characters and an underlying message.
Varun Sharma
I have a great deal of respect for Sir Alex Ferguson. He has done a great job. Without any doubt, he is one of the best and most influential around. He is the embodiment of football.
Frank Rijkaard
I am proud to say that I was launched in Tamil through ‘Poi’ by Balachander sir, who was the one who launched the legends like Rajni sir, Kamal sir & Prakash Raj sir.
Uday Kiran
It’s really strange, but I find a connect with Shivaji Raje through Rajinikanth. Rajini sir is born a Marathi, he’s a superstar in Tamil film industry and a national icon too. He started his life as an ordinary man and reached the pinnacle. This is how Shivaji Raje’s life also traversed from common to extraordinary.
Shriya Saran
When you change a manager like Sir Alex Ferguson, it is difficult.
Marouane Fellaini
I have no problem with Sir Alex Ferguson.
Carlos Tevez
When I was offered to sing ‘Tere Bina’ in ‘Guru’ by A. R. Rahman sir, it was a surreal experience. The song clicked, and many composers took notice of me and my work then.
Chinmayi
When I see the kind of passion Sir Alex shows, it is hard to believe he is about to celebrate his 71st birthday.
Edwin van der Sar
My mom is in the navy and my dad works for the army, but I never called them ‘sir’ or ‘ma’am’ or anything like that, and we never really moved around a lot because both my parents were stationed in D.C.
Ian Harding
It was a wonderful experience working with Nagarjuna sir. I mean, I never expected this to happen. For me, who watched his films standing in a queue at theatres, and now sharing the screen with him is a huge thing.
Nani
There is a chip on my shoulder, both shoulders, yes sir.
Lamar Jackson
Ilaiyaraaja sir is a legend and his films like ‘Udhiripookkal’ has inspired me to a great extent. In fact, that was the spark behind ‘Naan.’
Vijay Antony
I started with veteran K. Balachander sir, who called me for his series ‘Anni.’ He promised me that he would make sure that I get good film offers as well.
Adithya Menon
I would love to work with Sir Anthony Hopkins. How and why that would happen in a comedy I’m not sure – why he would be dragged over to my side, or I’d be be dragged over to his side.
Eugene Levy
Never in my wildest dreams I thought I would work with Dharmendra sir. I remember the first selfie I took with him, I posted on our family WhatsApp group. My father couldn’t stop beaming with joy. I could feel it. Everytime I see them proud, it makes everything so worth it.
Kriti Kharbanda
I think in any organization you want your manager to have a strong opinion. You don’t want them to just say, ‘Yes, sir’ to things they don’t believe in.
Terry Francona
That’s part of American greatness, is discrimination. Yes, sir. Inequality, I think, breeds freedom and gives a man opportunity.
Lester Maddox
In England, it’s now Sir Ben. Mister has just disappeared. It’s not even on my passport anymore. They’ve taken Mister away from me.
Ben Kingsley
I want to do action of course. It is my father Jai Singh Nijar’s dream to cast me in a good action-comedy film like Akshay Kumar sir. I have even trained to build up fitness for the genre.
Sunny Singh
My maternal grandmother had what might be described in a school report as a ‘lively imagination.’ She told us that she was a direct descendant of Sir Christopher Wren.
Jeremy Hardy
I used to often see Rajini sir at shooting spots when I worked as a car cleaner for Super Subbarayan master.
Raghava Lawrence
I’m probably going to be ashamed to say this… It was a Sir Mix-a-Lot album. I think I was 12, 13. I had just enough money for the ‘My Posse’s on Broadway’ single, so I bought that single. That was the first thing I bought with my own money.
Rick Famuyiwa
But as I grew up as a child, falling in love with the theater and Shakespeare, my heroes were Sir Laurence Olivier and Sir John Gielgud.
Patrick Stewart
Sir, there is no Christian nation, thus free to choose as we are, which would establish slavery.
William H. Seward
Salman sir has always told me three things: Be humble. Hard work is extremely important. That’s what takes you forward in life.
Athiya Shetty
One day I was in school, and the next I was acting opposite Jeremy Irons. That’s how quickly it happened. I was in class and then working with Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Lena Headey
Like Sir Alex Ferguson, I was so used to winning that I

Like Sir Alex Ferguson, I was so used to winning that I couldn’t get used to the idea of losing.
Phil Taylor
After my experience working with Kamal Haasan sir, the ‘Aval’ team was the most professional and well-planned group I’ve come across. They were so meticulous that I completed my portions in just 22 days!
Andrea Jeremiah
I didn’t really realize I was a woman director until I walked onto the set at Pinewood Studios when I did ‘Mamma Mia!’ and everybody was calling each other ‘Governor’ and ‘Sir’… and then, looking at me, ‘Well… good morning!’
Phyllida Lloyd
I have been a huge fan of Sangakkara Sir, since I started watching cricket on the TV.
Smriti Mandhana
Sir Richard Attenborough was a wonderful human being and an amazing actor and director. He was a British who really loved India, its people, the culture and the conscience. He lived a great life.
Alok Nath
Poetry is a mere drug, Sir.
George Farquhar
Not to be too grandiose about it, but in a way I see myself like Sir Edmund Hillary. The water was my Everest.
Lewis Gordon Pugh
Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the best managers in football history.
Tim Howard
I vividly remember my first interaction with Sir Richard Attenborough, I was in my final year at NSD (National School of Drama) in 1979, and casting director Dolly Thakore got in touch with me. We weren’t supposed to work outside NSD but special permission was granted to the students who were shortlisted for the audition.
Alok Nath
I’m very close to Sir Alex and have a lot of respect for him, and a lot of respect for myself.
Patrice Evra
After Sir Alex Ferguson, it’s been a difficult time for Man United, but actually, many people know that after Sir Alex Ferguson, it would be difficult for Man United.
Park Ji-sung
I’ve seen almost all of Rajinikanth sir’s movies, at least the ones that have come to Mumbai, since I don’t understand Tamil. I loved him in the movie ‘Hum’ as well.
Karishma Tanna
I had an awful first quarter but I picked it up. To all you single guys out there, it’s not how you start the date, it’s how you finish it sir. A lot of people can, you know, start the date with flowers and candy, but if you don’t finish the date – you know what I mean?
Shaquille O’Neal
Working with Akshaye Khanna and Richa Chadha was amazing. I am a huge fan of Akshaye sir.
Meera Chopra
Not everyone can say they were signed by Sir Alex Ferguson and Man United.
Wilfried Zaha
There is no doubt that my former manager Sir Alex exerted an influence over some referees. He was the master of dropping a comment into his Friday press conference – for instance, how long it had been since we had been given a penalty, or the treatment meted out to a player like Cristiano Ronaldo.
Paul Scholes
Sir Stirling Moss, who said that women don’t have the mental aptitude to take part in F1, is from a different generation. There’s no reason why women can’t rise to the top in F1. If you’re not good enough you don’t survive.
Susie Wolff
You knew where you stood with Sir Alex Ferguson.
Paul Scholes
I can do lovers. I can do Sir Galahad types. I’m not going to limit myself in voice-overs to irascible old men.
Ed Asner
Pawan Kalyan sir today is my strength in the industry.
Nithiin
I’m really looking forward to Rohit Sir’s film ‘Sooryavanshi.’ I’m a big Rohit Shetty fan and also Akshay Sir is in it.
Angad Bedi
If you want a measure of how private a place the dressing room was when I was growing up at Manchester United, consider this: even Sir Alex Ferguson would knock before coming into the dressing room at the Cliff, the old training ground. The dressing room is for the players – and the players only.
Paul Scholes
I don’t like it when filmmakers say, ‘Just come like this, sir.’ I like to experiment with my makeup. I wish more filmmakers let me do that.
Radha Ravi
I was introduced to Amitabh Bachchan by Ram Gopal Varma. He said ‘Hello Sudeep’ and I just said ‘Hi, sir.’
Sudeep
Oh, Mr Coward, sir – I could never have an affair with you, because you remind me of my father!
Kenneth More
My first-ever meeting with Abbas-Mustan sir was for three-four hours! I haven’t met anybody for so long, even those who I know well.
Kiara Advani
The principles upon which a safety lamp might be constructed I stated to several persons long before Sir Humphrey Davy came into this part of the country.
George Stephenson
I’d like to say I’m R&B’s savior. Whether that’s the truth or not, I’m definitely going out there with my mic and my shield to declare, ‘I am here to save R&B.’ I will have the people saying, ‘Sir, there is a man at the musical gates saying he is here to save R&B.’
Jamie Foxx
Women become aunties as soon as they are married while men become sir. And this happens not just in India but everywhere in the world, including Brazil.
Shweta Basu Prasad
I tend to discourage people from calling me ‘Sir Ian,’ because I don’t like being separated out from the rest of the population. Of course, it can be useful if you’re writing an official letter, like trying to get a visa or something passed through Parliament. They’re impressed by these things.
Ian Mckellen
We’re all so digital, but the ’50s was the era of watches you had to wind. When Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Everest in 1953, Hillary was equipped with a Rolex Oyster Perpetual.
Sara Sheridan
I used to be very shy, and when I joined Satyanand sir'

I used to be very shy, and when I joined Satyanand sir’s acting school, I used to be afraid to talk in front of everyone. But I learnt so much from Satyanand sir.
Varun Tej
You will never see United manager Sir Alex Ferguson in the media taking problems he has or the squad has or the club has into the open. Never, ever. But you do see that at Manchester City.
Peter Schmeichel
When I started, there were no Indians on television or films, except for Sir Ben Kingsley. I was an actor in high school, college, and I played leads. And when I graduated, I knew that I couldn’t go to Hollywood and audition for shows or films. I could try, but where was the evidence that it was going to happen?
Jay Chandrasekhar
The architect who first inspired me to follow this profession was Sir John Soane and his Regency home; well, his three homes, now a museum. The place is like an encyclopedia of paintings, antiquities, furniture, sculptures, and drawings.
Anouska Hempel
I can read Middle English stories, Geoffrey Chaucer or Sir Thomas Malory, but once I start moving in the direction of contemporary fantasy, my mind begins to take over.
David Eddings
My breakthrough as a reader was when I discovered the European adventure story writers – Alexander Dumas, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Walter Scott, to name a few.
Terry Brooks
In America, people come up to me and say, ‘Hi, Sir Humph!’
Nigel Hawthorne
When you work with Sir Anthony there are days when he will do a lot of takes if he’s really enjoying a scene.
Claire Forlani
Rahman sir keeps pushing himself. He keeps trying new things, whether it is his craft, music or sound… he is always learning. He looks for opportunities to learn, even from children.
Chinmayi
When I did a scene with Dharam sir for the first time, I actually cried!
Kriti Kharbanda
It’s always been that I feel more masculine in drag than I do out of it. I only get called ‘ma’am’ out of drag and I only get called ‘sir’ in drag.
Alaska
It may not be proper for me, perhaps, to let my feelings carry me further am therefore resigned to stop here, if sir, you think my particular reasons following too free, or will give offense to the House, which I would be sorry to be thought capable of intending.
Christopher Gadsden
Winston Churchill was not entirely British. His mother was American, making Sir Winston part Iroquois Indian.
Rachel Blanchard
There is no need to worry about mere size. We do not necessarily respect a fat man more than a thin man. Sir Isaac Newton was very much smaller than a hippopotamus, but we do not on that account value him less.
Bertrand Russell
Sir Larry could be very strict and a disciplinarian, too. He had many faces; he wore many hats. But, ultimately, he loved the theater and he loved actors.
Derek Jacobi
I will make sure I will not go in the wrong path. I will get experience playing in IPL. I will talk with Ricky Ponting sir, Pravin Amre sir, and all the other support staff. I will enjoy over there.
Prithvi Shaw
Importantly, Rajini sir doesn’t take his fans and audiences for granted.
Karthik Subbaraj
Working with my friend Sir Antony Sher is truly one of the highlights of my career as an artist.
John Kani
If someone comes to me with a script and says, ‘Sir, this hero…’ I’m like, ‘Is there a name, or he is just called a hero?’ We are not heroes. Heroes are people fighting for us at the border. We are not heroes; we are just doing our job.
Rajkummar Rao
During the Sir Alex Ferguson years, you would see all those great players – Roy Keane, Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Jaap Stam, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo, to name just a few – and you’d quickly realise why Old Trafford had an aura like nowhere else.
Peter Crouch
For anyone to say that WWE is fake or anything like that, no sir! It’s very physical, and the injuries are real; the blood is real.
Roman Reigns
People ask, ‘Should I call you Sir Hopkins?’ But I say, ‘No. Call me Tony,’ because it’s too much of a lift-up.
Anthony Hopkins
I have seen humility in many of the finest leaders I have met the world over. And indeed, it is embodied in the warm, engaging and quintessentially successful spirit of Sir Richard Branson.
Naveen Jain
Every time I meet Rahman sir, it’s a fan moment for me. I don’t take the fact that I am working with him lightly. I get excited every time I see and work with him. But I don’t embarrass him.
Chinmayi
Sir Alex Ferguson must be very high up on the list of greatest managers ever. Then there is Fabio Capello, and people forget how much Giovanni Trapattoni achieved at Inter and especially Juventus.
Sven-Goran Eriksson
