Those were the first buses I sent from Mumbai to Karnataka. The journey of sending migrant laborers by train, bus and bike started from there. I swore that I would not stop till the last person reached his home safely.’
“It took just a few months as a result of folks stranded in far-flung locations like Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Philippines and Russia reached out to me as a result of they wished to come again dwelling,” he said. You know, all these years when I was doing films, it all came to an end when the director said “minimize”. But for what I’m doing now, there is no “minimize”. God is the director and I am playing a real role which I always wanted to play in my life. I didn’t follow any protocol but just followed my heart. I connected face to face with every single person. He should belong to any caste, colour, creed or state. I’ve spent days on the phone with him and I was really living his pain. I feel they are my family.’
