The actor adds that he completed the film in just four days. “We shot the entire film in the span of just four days in Mumbai. I wish I could share more about the short film, but let’s wait for the official announcement to be made first,” he signs off.

The talented actor is also looking forward to the release of his much-awaited Hollywood film Death on the Nile. Directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh in the lead role, the film is based on the 1937 detective novel of the same name by Christie.
