I don’t want to make a single cut in that shot”. I weirdly cherish everything. Love you Acha. Can’t wait for the world to see your Magnum Opus. Glad I got to be a small part of it.”

Never i have imagined in my wildest dreams that I would b directing my daughter in a movie. Destiny has done it.Hard work pays for every one. that’s what I am proud of you Ammu , Being true to what you wish to do”
