Excerpts from interview:
“I enjoyed acting in the movie with Sanjay Mishra, he’s such a humble, honest and down to earth man. I’ve learnt a lot from him,” said Ankit Mishra. “Fame is not the purpose, I take acting as an art form and I love everything about acting. As for me acting is an art, so I would rather consider myself as an artist instead an actor,” said Ankit Sharma. “Good acting skills are the basic need of a feature and parallel film and I would love doing those films which enhances my work,” said Ankit.
