He will now be turning director with his unique subject, which I didn’t want to miss out on,” says Prajwal.

It happened with Life Jothe Ondh Selfie, Gentleman, and then, Inspector Vikram. Even If it is going to be back-to-back films, I am glad to be occupied with some good ventures, and associating with a good technical team,” he signs off.
