He further tells, “I for long wanted to be a part of the magical world Shoojit sircar creates. I have been waiting since the day I became an actor. I loved and admired his work of honesty and bravery with which he narrated the story. This opportunity was my good fortune that I could experience such direction in my acting life”.

He further shares, “I have a bittersweet feeling ever since I got the opportunity, I wanted Irfaan Saab to attract this headlines. Me trying to walk in his shoes was difficult and yet I tried. Part of me always wishes that this happen and the need to take over this role didn’t ever arise. A part of my heart always wishes that Irfaan Saab had been here to give this character a phenomenal spark.” He finally adds,” I think he is up there and around us, appreciating and blessing our efforts for making this movie idea into work”.
