My very close friend Navin has been there for me when I was struggling and I was financially weak at the start of my career and has been supporting me since then with good advices. My fans have always loved me. I don’t have a godfather as such in the industry but my family and friends get the full credit. Without their support I couldn’t continue to work for so many years in the industry.”
