The Makkhi star spoke about Rakshit and about their film saying, "Rakshit is a very sweet boy. He has these very cold fights with me, which he doesn't express and I have mine too. I admire him as a writer and as an actor more after Charlie. He has a great ambition for telling stories and I am sure, he will make Thugs of Malgudi when he wants to do it. I keep bullying people that don't believe this boy. As and when he finishes a film, he runs into something else. Which is fair. This film will happen when it is meant to happen. It's a brilliant idea. I just know a line of it, but it's a brilliant idea. I am sure he will do a great job on the film."
