And excited because I’m finally a step closer towards realizing a dream I’ve had since childhood. It’s a mix of all kinds of emotions. Gurfateh, Lakshya, and I have prepped a lot for it, and it’s a very special film for the whole Bedhadak team. It’s very close to my heart! I’m extremely grateful to have gotten a film like Bedhadak.”

I’ve worked very hard and I will continue to – it’s not even something I want to keep repeating because that is the job – you’re meant to work hard, and I have. I hope people recognize that when they see my work.”
