I wanna do a Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and all that but this is what I get.” He also revealed that no one has offered him anything close to the roles of a boy next door or chocolate boy.

He said, Collaborating with a brilliant director such as Mahesh Sir is always a pleasure. After the phenomenal success of CU Soon and Joji, which were also released on Amazon Prime Video, I am thrilled to be presented in another exciting release – Malik. The storyline of Malik is truly very special to me and we have put our heart and soul into making this film. I’m sure our viewers will also feel that after watching the amazing trailer. I hope that viewers across the world share their love and appreciation for this film too.”
