About the film, he said, “I was very happy when I heard that I would get the opportunity to work with Kajol Ma’am. When I entered the story, I was moved to see how the author of the story was touched when he told us the story. I am very close to my mother. When I realized that this is the story of a mother and child surviving against impossible odds, I was immediately on board. It’s an opportunity to show another side of my personality in this role. “
He added, “I am one of the lucky actors to have had the opportunity to work with Ma’am and Kajol Ma’am, who are both contemporary and film legends themselves. I feel this is a great opportunity and I am happy that I got the chance to showcase my acting skills in front of you.” on talented actors like these.”
