NAGESH KUKUNOOR ON DHANAK

NAGESH KUKUNOOR ON DHANAK

The idea behind Dhanak? The idea was to remind myself that there were some good people and some goodness left in the world.

Arjun Mathur for Coffee Bloom

Arjun Mathur for Coffee Bloom

What is it that you liked about Coffee Bloom that you said yes to it? As an actor, I have always believed in experimenting with my roles. And when I heard the script, I instantly fell in love with the concept of the film.
