In this film, director Majid sir has taken effective measures to emphasize this issue and how about bringing the changes. Being a part of this film has impacted to change my way of treating the city over cleanliness and has changed my way of respecting the nature.”

It was a dream to meet him at least once in a life time, but I couldn’t believe that I am being offered to play an important role in his ‘Papanasam’. He was so humble and helpful in cheering me up every time we had to shoot together. He advised me to treat every film as a debut and this will keeping things work out at best…”
