Today I embark on a new film. The jitters and fears are still present but time has helped turn that into something positive. This annual reminder from all of you helps keep the memories of how I began fresh and that in turn always makes me realise how I began and where I came from. For that and for your constant support and love, a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart. To all of my colleagues and to the various industries it’s a privilege to work along side all of you in this magical wonderland. Praying for this year to mark some fantastic movies and good health and cheer to all of you. Thank you again !"
