I remember meeting Parineeti there when she worked there and it was amazing that later I got to work with her in the films she acted. Also, Bhumi and I share a very interesting rapport. She was an assistant casting director and I used to be responsible for the casting of the film which I was assisting in. Both of us have worked in three films together. To see her debut film smashing box office records was a delight! And here I am now following their footsteps and it’s my time to debut and become an actor. This is surreal and it’s a very special feeling.”
