"Made my first short film when I was 17 years old. No money, No team but had a lot of support from Orkut and family. I edited, shot and directed 90% of my short films. I learned from my mistakes and criticism was always like extra boost for my journey. Travelled very long way and faced many hurdles but never gave up. Today many people saw SAAHO - some expected more from it, but many loved it! Thanks to all for watching the movie Please watch it again if you missed anything. I am sure you’ll enjoy even more. #Saaho," he added.
