"I remember meeting Tiger about a year back when he knew nothing about movies or the film industry. At that time I was scripting this film about a young boy and was totally open to any actor to be cast in it," Sabbir said. "However, Tiger's personality continued to play in mind. The very fact that he was so raw coupled with the way he looked brought a certain uniqueness to him," he added.
Sabbir's first film Kambakkth Ishq didn't do well at the Box Office and he is making a comeback after three years. But the filmmaker is not letting his first failure affect him as he believes that he has learnt a lot.
