Every grey role has a lot of layers to it, and this particular side of my character will definitely be something different to watch out for in NAXALBARI. The audience will have to wait for the release to find out how things take a turn in the end and my character’s doing with it. I hope the viewers enjoy watching this promo as much as they have loved the trailer.”
