"As a newcomer in the industry, it was my dream to work with
Karan Johar. When my casting director informed me about this
project, I could not believe. I met Karan and he narrated the
script and I must say that I never had such a better narration in
life. I was actually visualising each and every scene in my mind."
"I will be sharing the screen space with Rani Mukherjee and Randeep
Hooda in this segment of 25 minutes. I can't ask for more than this

stuck to any specific genre. I don't think about my future but I am
happy that I have been accepted well in this industry," he
