“I feel honoured that I am a part of this family, which has been contributing to Indian cinema for more than 80 years now. There indeed is a responsibility that I have to carry forward. However, I don’t want to rest under my family’s name. I want to make a name for myself.”
“Music is the purest form to reach millions of hearts and it has always been on my side. It is a disadvantage that I can’t sing. My mother tried that I get hold of it, but my teachers also confessed that I can’t. It’s one of my aspirations that I would want to fulfill. I would want to lend my voice some day.”
