The Kashmiri actors would go out of the way to give me cues, help me out, and do the scenes. I think there was a lot of positive energy for the film,” media reports quoted the debutante as saying.

“I play a role of the main antagonist in the movie, rest you will come to know after you watch it,” Sarwar told this reporter.

Talking about the movie, Sarwar said he has an important role in the move, “the movie is basically about the authentic love story of two lovers Firdaus and Kabir, along with a strong support cast with the child artists, who play a vital role on the story,” Sarwar said.

“Thanks to everybody whoever is associated with the film. It was really great to share the screen with amazing artists in the movie,” Sarwar added.
