Life is a game of running on a high speed, heavy traffic, accident prone street with drunk drivers. You have to save yourself. Most fall victim to accidents and never recover. Those who survive accidents, get up and run again, reach their destination.”

“We have finalized the Lucknow schedule and Sapthami will be joining the team in the Hyderabad schedule which starts in a few days. I saw Kantara and liked her performance as Leela. I so wanted her to be part of my film, and when I called Sapthami, she kindly agreed to play the part. I am very happy that she is joining The Vaccine War team,” he added.
