There are One of my upcoming movies will be shot in the region. When I was young and staring my career, like every other young man, I was always looking for big production houses and big directors. But now, I try to focus more on content, because it is the soul of a movie. Some small-budget but interesting movies that are lined up for me in the coming few years.

Similar is the case for India. We are doing well economically, hence our films are going global as well. Films have also helped spread India's different cultural aspects, like the Indian festival Karwa Chauth which has been shown in films.<
