The actor, who was first noticed in the then debutant director Neeraj Ghaywan’s 2015 social drama “Masaan”, said every film is a new project for both the actor and the filmmaker. He later collaborated with a string of new directing talent like Mozez Singh for “Zubaan”, Anand Tiwari for “Love Per Square Foot”, and Aditya Dhar for “Uri: The Surgical Strike”, for which the actor earned the best actor National Award.

“I owe my career to debutant directors, so I’m quite used to working with first timers. I just read the script and if I am sold on that, I meet the director to understand his vision.
