Tel us about your film “Yeh Mera India”
This film is very special to me and I feel proud and obliged to be associated to the film. Film showcases those questions which we imprint on our thoughts, believes, actions, missions, visions and live life with those unsolved and unanswered questions. We the team of Y.M.I has worked as a football team where the goal is the same of building an awareness but roles are different.
How was your experience working with Director N.Chandra ?
Since childhood I use to watch films of N.Chandra. I admired him immensely for the quality of work and direction he has under his belt. He has given fabulous master-pieces like “Tezaab” “Ankush” to the industry. And when he approached me with this film, I was more than happy and without a doubt I had to the movie.
To believe, the film has raised the issue of North Indian and Marathi. To what extent is it true?
Such issues don’t bother common man. And city like Mumbai has been metropolitan one. And raising such issues are baseless and utterly misleading. Such issues are only matter of concern for politicians who bring it out for their personal benefits. And we public know and understand everything.

It is the story of childhood friends and how an incident can change lives, beliefs, relationships between them. All the friends tread a path where greed rules, death triumphs and relationship, bonding are buried deep inside tunnel holding no value.

It is fast-paced film and Director has presented this film in a very interesting manner. He is hardworking and absolute passionate about his work.
