He said, “I have never been there, but I don’t know why I like Arunachal Pradesh so much that I just wanted to go there for the longest time to see the place and to be there. I did a film called ‘Tubelight’ with child actor Matin Rey Tangu who hails from Arunachal Pradesh. So, whenever he used to meet me, he used to tell me to visit Itanagar which is in Arunachal Pradesh.”
