He stated this at the sidelines of the opening ceremony, of the fifth edition of the Smile International Film Festival for Children and Youth (SIFFCY). At the event he also went on to highlight the importance of making impact-full films for children.
He was quoted as saying, “I primarily work in Hollywood and that is very commercial cinema. It is not impossible but it is challenging trying get things which you personally believe to implement the same in the films.. but I always try to make sure I work something on impact-full projects for children so that a child can see it and take something from it.”
