For Rao, SRK is not just a superstar but a beacon of wisdom and inspiration. It was during a candid conversation that Shah Rukh imparted a valuable lesson to Rao, one that transcends the realms of cinema and delves into the domain of life's philosophy.


"Shah Rukh sir had taught me one thing, 'Beta kabhi bhi ghar lega na, toh aukaat se thoda zyada lena. Kyunki phir na, upar wala bhi dekhta hai aur tu khud bhi zyada mehnat karega,'" Rao shared with Mashable. The essence of SRK's advice resonated deeply with Rao, urging him to aspire for more, to stretch beyond his comfort zone, and in doing so, to fuel his drive for success.

The recent acquisition of a lavish Rs 44 crore property in Mumbai, formerly owned by Janhvi Kapoor, is a testament to Rao's adherence to Shah Rukh's sagacious counsel.

It is a city where dreams are woven into the fabric of reality, where aspirations take flight amidst the glittering lights of Bollywood. For Rao, Mumbai symbolizes not just a geographical location but a canvas brimming with infinite possibilities, a place where dreams are nurtured and destinies are crafted.

Directed by Tushar Hirananandi, the film promises to captivate audiences with its compelling narrative and stellar ensemble cast, including Jyothika, Sharad Kelkar, and Alaya F.
