When the question was asked ,”What message would you give to the youth today?” He quoted, “I just want to tell them, not to compromise with their ideas and ideologies just to earn some extra money and never to lose the convention they have within. Never do something, just because others are doing it because every Filmmaker is different in their own way and that’s what the film making needs in the current situation.

All you ever need is one person to like you and give you that shot to push you forward, always keep high hopes and most of all what’re your doing go with god because you’ll never fail.
