Even if that means upgrading the work, whenever it opens up, we are gonna come.”

I can’t really say much but I am very thankful to Milap, John, Nikkhil for giving me this opportunity to express myself as an artist. I just hope and pray more opportunities come my way so that I can explore more. I still feel there’s a lot inside me as an artist waiting for it to come out.”
