So yeah, this is my second project with him. And with time I’ve understood his vision as well. He is one of the brilliant directors of our industry and has given us such amazing movies to watch.”
Calling it a lifetime memory, Shayank shares his working experience with Amitabh Bachchan and others.
He says: “In this project, I got an opportunity which has become a lifetime memory for me because here I’m performing with Amitabh Bachchan Sir, which is a dream come true moment for me as an actor and as a fan as we all have grown up watching him onscreen and imitating his dialogues.”

“Not only for actors, but for musicians, directors, writers and many more departments. Also I feel everybody (audience) is actually evolving themselves with different platforms, whether it’s kids, youngsters and adults. There’s so much content available worth enjoying according to their comfort. And I feel this is the reason why makers are making more and more content and actors like me are getting more and more opportunities to represent our talent,” he concludes.
