It is once in a lifetime opportunity. I consider myself very fortunate to have worked with him, Aditya told.

He is such a beautiful director to work with. It takes you to a certain emotional space and believes that it is your job to take you there. It is something invaluable to have as an actor a director come and explain it to you.

He is an insightful and profound man who can open these windows in your mind just by talking to you and taking you to that space. He is so selfless for you, that you do everything for him.
