Please tell me about your character in the film.
I’ve essayed the role of traditional-minded husband of Bhoomi Pednekar in the film. I recognise my wife by the colour of Ghoonghat as spotted by her and not by name. This is the peculiarity about my role. I had started my career from ‘Crime Petrol’ TV serial and I am really very much happy about my journey so far in the film industry. I have acted as the younger brother of Prakash Jha in the film.

The film is an inspiring film, based on a true story, which motivates aged persons to restart their life with a new leaf and that one never retires until one breathes one’s last.

I’ve acted in the second lead in Indra Kumar’s film, ‘Phatee padi hai yaar’. I have also played an important role in a biopic on the nobel laureate, Malala Yousafzai, ‘Gul Makai’. I’m playing the role of a Pakistani Army officer in the film. Besides, I’m also working in films like ‘The Suitable Boy’ by Meera Nair, ‘The Lovers’ and ‘Phir se shaadi’. The film is based on the theme of Triple Talaq and I’ve played the role of father of the lead actress. In the film, ‘Antarvyatha’, I’ve played the role of a lunatic person who has been imprisoned.
What is your future plan?
Well. I want to open a Film Training School at my native place, Gwalior so as to give a chance to the rural youth in the film world.
