Kiara is a beautiful woman, I loved working along with her.

If these children needed something, they used to inform me that you just say on our behalf since you’re senior, and other people wouldn’t say no to you. I used to fireside folks in a loving means. And Anil used to point out that he’s the youngest of all. He made the entire unit contact my toes after the primary shot. He made me really feel so previous on the units (laughs).

I really feel household and love tales by no means exit of trend. Nevertheless, it’s popping out amidst the section the place South movies are working on the field workplace, however household dramas with feelings and romance by no means fail. I really feel each household goes by means of the identical form of issues. The story of our movie is just not unbelievable.
Since you’ve got made your comeback, what sort of work are you searching for?
I actually need to do one thing good, like how two to a few scenes in JugJugg Jeeyo attracted me. It needs to be impactful. It shouldn’t be like I’m doing it for the sake of doing it. I gained’t thoughts doing a thriller, and I’m open to doing OTT content material as effectively.
