Gumraah has made me challenge myself as an actor. This was my first double role, so double the effort and I am thankful for this opportunity. Having Vardhan Ketkar guide me through it and my costar Mrunal Thakur’s support, helped me perfectly sync between the two roles. However, it's the film’s fascinating script that had me sold. I am happy to be a part of such a great film.”
