And today, as we complete 1 YEAR of Dil Bechara (!!) becoming yours forever, all I have in my heart is unsurmountable heaps of gratitude for the kind of love, admiration and support you all have bestowed on our film, and the deep embrace you have given me over this year.It’s fuel for the soul. It’s what makes this vulnerable, emotional and magical journey of being an actor absolutely surreal.”

And the opportunity to do that in the guidance of so many creatives geniuses made it unforgettable – Mukesh, Sushant, Rahman Sir, Rucha, Setu Sir, Swastika, Shashank Sir, Shashwat Da, Pritam Da, Sahil.”
