Talking about becoming an author, "So many things have changed and will be lost with time if we don't record them. It would be nice to look back; to remember and to record. It has been funny and moving, and I must say, this is quite a selfish endeavour. I do hope others enjoy the book, too, of course!" he said, as reported by PTI.
The actor said it is nice to look back, remember, and record things before they are lost with time. Bushra Ahmed, commissioning editor, HarperCollins India mentioned that the book will be reflective, cheeky, and fun.
