“Sanjay is my idol, and I would consider myself lucky if I can be half as good an actor he is, and get the space he’s created for himself in the industry. I’ve grown up watching his movies and imitating his style, even during my teen years. I’ve taken inspiration from him for my role as a gangster. Right from his body posture, to the way he articulates. No one can portray a gangster better than him. I hope I can achieve that skill right,” Ali said.
