"More importantly, stars like me or filmmakers like me have to change myself as an actor and as a filmmaker," he added. One of the most important factors to become a true actor is deconstructing yourselves and discarding your egos. " I like to be a superhero, a midget, a fan with a prosthetic face."

He also stated that they, the filmmakers had been together to fight, to bring more valuable ideas. "We find logic and disregard the free-spirit of storytelling." Moreover, the filmmaker must be valid in both themselves and the stories they are going to tell, Jab Harry Met Sejal's main added.
