In what ways do you think you relate to Keshav Desai?
Keshav Desai's father is a constable whose philosophy is to be happy with whatsoever you have. KD's philosophy is just opposite to what his father thinks. He is a dreamer, an optimistic guy and has a lot of respect for girls. I can relate very much to my character as I am also a dreamer.
