He, in the five-minute-long video, opened up about the director and what role he played in his life. He said, "He had called me earlier and I couldn't pick up as I was in London for location recce. When I called him back, he said, "Mysskin, I heard your film is shaping up well. I wish you all the best." Many people have said that he hasn't achieved anything. According to me, he's the biggest achiever. He is like a zen saint."
