Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt on Tuesday said that he failed more times than he succeeded in his professional as well as personal life.

Bhatt while addressing the students of Khalsa College, was asked if he ever feared anything in his life, he said, "Fear is a reality which you have to understand. The way you can't run away from your shadow, similarly, fear will always be part of you."

All living beings have fear but courage lies in having fear and still doing things, he added. It is learnt that Bhatt's personal and professional life has been full of ups and downs.

The Bollywood filmmaker also said, "There is no full stop and there is no horizon. I don't want to burden you with my non-existent greatness. I am an ordinary, simple person. I have fallen down and I have stood up. I learnt through trial and error. I failed more times than I succeeded. So, I just want to tell you that you shouldn't be frightened by failure. If a mediocre and ordinary person like me can make it, I am sure that each child here can do it, too."
