There are a number of people who I equally wish to share credit of my work with, that including all the incredible directors I have worked with all these years, my many co-stars, my parents whom without none of this would ever be possible. I am thankful to my son who has supported and encouraged me and given me the reason to be at it even today. And of course, most importantly my dear viewers who have always showered their love and admiration on my work.” Kudos to our beloved Katori amma!
