to perform any scene because now I am used to it.

father told me that it is good to act. So, I started acting and now I
love it. I like performing and speaking different kinds of dialogues. I
love it when I have to manage different expressions. It is all so good.
People at the shoot tell you that there are tigers around Filmistan,
where the shooting is going on. Have you seen them? Are you scared while

here and there, so I have been told.
Q. How do you manage your studies and school schedule with shooting?

is fun to work with all of them. They help me whenever I find it
difficult to do anything. Other than that my father is always there on
the set with me while the shoot is on. He makes me understand things in
his way and I catch his words easily.

was all normal. When I grow up I will be whatever my father will ask me
