I didn’t feel like I was acting it came to me naturally and with Anees Bhai’s writing and direction and with Nana being the perfect Co-Star as Uday Bhai made it even more easier and lots of fun. I see so many recreations on social media of his dialogues & it’s amazing how he is still relatable even to the famous Gen Z. The character is one of the most iconic & will instantly lift your mood with his dialogues & swag. The on-set memories with Akshay, Nana, Paresh, Katrina will stay on. We used to laugh so much off camera after the final take. A wonderful film, character & experience. I am so grateful for this ever growing love for him.'
