“This is a rare situation and I'm sure a little patience from all will be my greatest strength. I too was equally excited to bring forth a film on screen after such a long gap. I will tweet soon on the show timings once I have better clarity on it. Until then I request not to cause any harm to yourself nor cause damage to any properties (theatres),” he added.
