The Spitsvilla star wrote in the note, he shared that as far as he has seen the struggle in Mumbai, it’s very difficult to survive but he can proudly say that within a short span of one year he achieved good Fame and Fan following. However, he realized that this doesn’t matter in life after death. He added that he used to offer Namaz but something was lacking and that was ‘Sukoon’ & my accountability towards Allah.
