I have already won 4 national awards at the age of 31, I am a filmmaker… how will they promote me… But my question is, Is Rani of Jhansi my chachi? She is as much as yours as she is mine… Why are these people so scared or hesitant!? Just because I spoke about Nepotism and they are are all shaken up due to that. They have all ganged up against me and are wondering why I spoke about nepotism.”
