“The director had a specific vision for this film and we all went by it. I did not take up any projects during that time. I worked out because he wanted the character of Indrajit in a certain way,” he added. “There was so much negativity around the film that a lot of people did not go and watch it including my close relatives. They assumed that jaayenge toh maar peet hoga. I was like let people decide whether they like it or not. You can’t create this (negativity) around a film. There were issues, but the team accepted them, and it was changed. But there is so much effort that goes into making a film and so many people working hard on it and is just very very heartbreaking. But again that`s life,” he concluded.
