Recently, he took to social media while expressing his emotions for this hometown – Basar in Lepa Rada, and took everyone back to his childhood memory lane.
In an emotional note, he mentioned, “A smile full of happiness, gratitude and emotions. As I was walking down the street of ‘Basar’ in Lepa Rada District, where I spent my childhood; where I have thousands of memories and now walking down the same streets with something different; with an achievement, having a smile full of gratitude and admiration around the people with loving attitude, hence adding one more memory. Time changes so does the people but genuine hearts and emotions remain the same. Thankful to everyone for receiving me in a grand way, another way in which everyone showed their love and support Thank you, Mom and Dad for having such a great reception for me, and everything you have done for me, it’s never enough to repay you even so I won’t say it I’ll try to do it.
