But most of all what works for me is him as an actor, him as a person and his personality. His eyes, his posture and his body language all fit the character of Adipurush. That was my reason for going to him with the role. And that’s what matters most to me. I’m grateful that he agreed to play the role. However, to answer your question, if there’s anything I would do to make a pan-Indian film, I don’t know what that means. Always I’ve tried to be true to my theme and true to the narrative I believe in the most. In fact, I would like to make a pan-global film. I think every artist wants to be seen in all parts of the world.”
