It’s extremely special for Arnav as his debut is with his dad and granddad, and that is something that we will never forget.”
Giving a peek into the experience of shooting together with family in Oh My Dog he says, “It was wonderful because we rarely get to spend quality time together because my dad and I are busy. Also, by the time I am home, Arnav goes to bed and hit the bed. So, we don’t spend so much time together.” He continues, “Thanks to Sarov for making this happen. I cherish all those beautiful memories, spent with my father and Arnav while filming in Ooty. I also got to see the unique bond between my father and Arnav. Arnav would never hesitate to ask questions to his grandfather, I never questioned my dad. Granddads are very lenient with their grandchildren. Arnav had the liberty with my dad, which I didn’t have. They behave very differently.”
