The actor says, “Anurag, who is a dear friend, has been waiting with open arms. It’s me who has been a little hesitant. But I think the time has come to do a Hindi film, if only to move into a new language space.
For many years, I worked as an engineer and moonlighted as an actor. Then I finally did what my heart told me to. I took up acting full-flegedly.” The film also stars telly actor Rahul Bhatt, Ronit Roy and Tejaswini Kolhapuri. Anurag says, “I have been waiting to make this film since the last seven years.”
