When the opportunity came to work on this show with Krushna, I was very pleased. He is a fine comic actor and I think he has impeccable comic timing. We always have a blast when we work together and this will be no exception.”

I love to play different characters and the ‘MAX Fully Deewana Contest’ is a very good medium to showcase the same. I was really glad I would be doing this with Kiku. He is a phenomenal comic actor and I think we complement each other on our comic timing which I think is very important.“
