Sharing an “interesting story” behind getting cast as Aaryan’s reel-life son in the film, he revealed that he has auditioned with Mukesh Chhabra for Ranveer Singh starrer ‘83.

He added, “He actively engages with the actors, rehearses lines, and gives and takes inputs. Even though I had a small role in my first film, he involved me in discussions and valued my input. Kabir Khan is truly inspiring, and I feel very fortunate to start my career with such a remarkable director.”
