Does she know herself?
I believed that was very intriguing.
There is thriller, however there is additionally a household drama.
And, after all, as a result of Dharma (Productions) is concerned in it and Karan Johar is a superb buddy.
The first time I labored with Netflix was after I made a Marathi movie and I offered it to Netflix.
I believed they have been incredible individuals to work with, and when the script got here to me, I instantly stated sure.
Sri Rao was in control of the script, and he got here to me and stated, ‘We are going to make this.’
Despite the truth that we had beforehand mentioned on doing one thing else, when he got here to me with this, I used to be very assured about it.
You are a father off display screen. On display screen, did you are feeling you may decide up nuances out of your actual life to play the function of Nikhil?

Everybody has completely different experiences.
I’ve to thank God that each one my experiences up to now have been fantastic. The individuals I met have been fantastic.
My dad and mom have been a power, all the time standing by me. But that is not the case with Anamika Anand; she has a very, very completely different life.
Her relationship along with her mom is very completely different from what I’ve with mine.
Having stated that, there are a lot of similarities within the sense that she is additionally a very huge star.
But the way in which she sees fame is very completely different from the way in which I see it.
