came to Mumbai to meet the director of the movie, signed the contract and went
to thank Salman sir personally. We met for few minutes as he was shooting an
important scene for Dabang 3. I thanked him and came back to Bhutan.
Around September 1st week I got a call again and this time they said Salman sir has given me an important role in his own movie and I was asked to come to meet the director of the movie Prabhu Deva. So I made an appointment and came to Mumbai one more time. I met the Prabhu sir and Salman sir. I spent whole day with Salman sir and he explained to me about the movie and how important my role is.
