He further spoke, “ The association has been great, because once the show is a hit, the association also becomes a hit because of that, it is a great feeling, people that I still talk to on the phone; sometimes we meet; sometimes we run into each other at parties or events, so many people that I still talk to on the phone, sometimes we meet, sometimes we run into each other at parties or at the event, so it's always great and it’s very dear to me and working with Balaji, is coming back home”.
