It was truly a testing time as the disease had taken a serious toll on my health despite the best efforts of the doctors and nurses in the hospital.”

The doctors have informed me that I can get discharged and go home next week. I have made this recovery also because of my family, friends, my mentors, directors, my film industry friends and all those faces I have never seen before. It is a blessing to live in a world where there is so much love. I am coming to live once again,” he added.
