My second movie Kasoor (2001) the place I performed a detrimental function bought me essential acclaim however one way or the other filmmakers don’t see me in these tales and characters that OTT did. I hope this sequence will make them take discover that I’ve lot of labor and potential but to be tapped as an artiste.”
