You will be returning to the big screen after a long hiatus. So what made you choose this film?
“I have been on the hunt for a good film, a good role and a director who could create a praiseworthy film. Then I received a call and someone expressed his wish to work with me. He told me the storyline and briefed the character. He is a very big name of the industry, a commercial director, I have worked with him before.
Later we met and talked. He told me it was the leading title role. When I heard the story, I felt like I had been yearning for this role all my life. This role was my unfulfilled wish. I felt like I had been parched and this would quench my thirst, I had been famished and this would satiate my appetite. I wanted to live this character, perform this character and be this character in front of my fans. Fortunately I got the chance.”
