I suppose it’s been a 12 months of studying and introspection. It was a 12 months of letting go and a 12 months that taught us to be pleased with what we have now. This 12 months made us realise we took a whole lot of issues for granted. I have develop into an alert and self-conscious particular person.

Work-wise, thankfully, it was an amazing 12 months for me. I had 5 releases on OTT. I received a Filmfare and one other award for a brief movie that I did. Now, work is slowly choosing up. Now, it feels regular and pure to return to the units. So, it (the 12 months) has been a bag stuffed with combined feelings.

You simply received your first Filmfare award. How does that really feel?

It was superb for me and surprising for others (chuckles). I have been nominated many instances, however this 12 months, the award lastly arrived residence. I suppose I am a late bloomer, however I am blooming nonetheless.

All this made me realise that individuals are very keen on me. They are happier for me than me myself, which is a really gratifying feeling. The realisation occurred when I received the National Award and even now with the Filmfare.
