The brand values of Hungama - mad fun and continuous innovation, appeal to me tremendously and I am looking forward to spending time interacting with kids. 'John Aur Kaun?' has given talented kids across the country an opportunity to shine and I am very glad to be involved in this effort. "

While Rishi Dalmia said, "I feel on the top of the world for winning this competition amongst thousands of kids. But at the same time I have to shoulder the responsibility of acting with some of the greatest stars like John and Bipasha, Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani. I am excited to start shooting for the film as the movie is on football and that's my favorite sport too.''
