I couldn't get it out of my head and told my manager that. She did some magic and that is how it happened. I was so excited about the story and so was the rest of the country, so I was pretty sure about part 2." He adds that the series doesn't make things easy for the audience. "It doesn't treat them like fools. It engages you with it's intelligent screenplay and story. It makes you think and after watching the series everyone is coming up with their theory which is so exciting. It shows how involved the audience is."

Speaking about his love for OTT and films, the actor said, "I enjoy films and OTT, I did not enjoy television much though I tried it once. Unfortunately on television it's not about quality but quantity of work. That becomes a problem for me because you cannot rush."
