As his home state Bihar heads for polls later this year, the actor-turned politician also praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a "dashing and dynamic man" and an "action hero" who is progressive
      
"I'm not angry with anyone. I'm cool, calm, composed. Sometimes I try to show the mirror to people for their childishness. Beyond that you can never ever say that I've crossed the party line, never crossed the lakshman rekha," Sinha said.
      
"I'm mature enough and senior enough in this party to understand whether I should cross party line or not. And if I have to do cross party line, then when. Such circumstances have not arisen yet," he said.
      
Sinha's recent meetings and praise for JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar have upset the BJP at a time when it hopes to deny him another term as chief minister.
      
Describing the upcoming Assembly polls in Bihar as a litmus test for the NJP and NDA, Sinha said he saw nothing wrong in his suggestion that the "able, capable, acceptable, respectable and secular" Ram Vilas Paswan should be the consensus CM candidate of Bihar from the BJP-led coalition. Paswan, a LJP leader, is currently an union minister.
