I had this memory with me for many years and then we connected several times from Lagaan. And when an opportunity came in the form of my production of Toolsidas Junior (directed by Mridul), I put it in it. It was really great to work with Rajiv. In the sets, he was an absolute professional. And he played the role with so much fun, dignity and ease. “
