“I am grateful, humbled and absolutely elated with the way things have gone for me so far. Acclaim is very subjective. I think I’ve gotten a fair share of mine in the bargain. It’s been a thrilling journey so far,” he added.

Audiences are watching content from all over the world. For you to catch their attention, you need to rise above the mediocrity and do something special with the way you tell your stories … I feel it’s good times for the entertainment industry … the content would rule and the quality would take precedence.”
