So many plans were made together, so many dreams were dreamt together but never once did I ever imagine that I would be releasing this film without him.”

And I’m glad that the Producers have made it available for everyone to watch. We are going to love and celebrate you my friend. I can visualise you with your beautiful smile blessing us from up above. Love you.”
