“So when Omung, Sandip and Vivek called me for the role, I immediately agreed to do it. The team is quite wonderful and Omung is doing a great job, we have already shot my part and it went very well,” he added.
“I must say that Vivek has worked really hard to get where he has gotten with the character. It was a pleasure to see Vivek maturing into an artist to take on such a difficult role. He has put in a lot of homework.”
