Mohit, mere bhai itni jaldi kya thi jaane ki? Maine tujhse kaha tha dekh tere liye saari industry ruk gayi hai. Jaldi se theek hoke aaja, uske baad hi sab kaam shuru karenge. Tu bahot achi acting karta hai. Agli film ke set pe tera intezaar karunga…. aur tujhe aana hi padega. Om Sai Ram
मोहित मेरे भाई इतनी जल्दी क्या थी जाने की?
मैंने तुझसे कहा था देख तेरे लिए सारी इंडस्ट्री रुक गयी है जल्दी से ठीक होके आजा उसके बाद ही सब काम शुरू करेंगे,
तू बहुत अच्छी एक्टिंग करता है,इसलिए अगली फिल्म के सेट पे तेरा इंतज़ार करूँगा…और तुझे आना ही पड़ेगा
