And just a few moments ago she also said the same thing that he makes such good films, I wish that you be a part of Sanjay sir’s film.”
He added, “I would love to yaar, if given a chance, 100 per cent. It’s amazing how he kind of shapes his films.”
Further, He spoke how he started his career with serious roles in plays during his theatre days. And Fukrey was his first try at comedy that made him realise that he can make people smile.

Talking about the film he said that the team has completed the shooting of the film and it is in the post production. The pandemic has brought everything to halt and the release also depends on the same.
