“If I want to say anything to someone then I reach out to the person individually. When you even want to help someone then don’t give a suggestion in front of the world then it would not have any value to me. If you are really concerned about me then you can have a direct talk with me that you genuinely want me to do well. Somehow, I live my life very honestly so these things are visible to you. I would not say that it doesn’t bother me but the truth is in front of you when you deliver things with honesty. I live my life the same way as you can’t do anything as almighty is there to acknowledge your work and honesty. So, I will keep playing like this till I am here on the field,” he added later.
