Being a father of two in my real life I could relate to this story line and that helped me immensely in bringing out this performance. Though I am into acting for the past 2-3 decades , the thrill of being in front of the camera and living a role exites me immensely irrespective of the platform. I am proud to have done this role and looking forward to do many more such meaningful characters in movies and Short films too “.
