I used to be shocked, and requested ‘Sir aap yahaan baithe ho?’. He mentioned ‘Yahaan bithaya hai’. I used to be shocked to see that man was sitting there. If his son would have been an actor, he’d have been within the entrance row, and that pained me,” he confesses.

I received a robust perspective, that is life, and it’s so unhappy. I meet veterans, they inform me ‘Humein koi cellphone nahi karta’, and are in tears. I’ve seen that very a lot, in shut quarters.”

There will probably be some excellent movies, and a few not so nicely,” he tells us.

What I went via through the time of Indu Sarkar’s launch… I used to be the man who stood up for movies of different folks, as a result of I imagine the liberty of expression needs to be maintained. However when my movie received focused, no person needed to return (ahead). You’ve to struggle your personal battles right here.”
