I obtained a powerful perspective, that is life, and it’s so unhappy. I meet veterans, they inform me ‘Humein koi telephone nahi karta’, and are in tears.

What I went by means of in the course of 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 ought to be maintained. However when my movie obtained focused, no person wished to come back (ahead). You’ve to combat your individual battles right here.”
