Talking about the film Big B also posted on his Blog, "Two individuals that possess different talents. The one with one does not have the other of the other. And the other of the other does not have the one of the one...But when brought together they can achieve what individually they could not... and when they do due to the efforts of a third, they measure up to the best and the highest."

"The problem shall come when the clash of the ego takes place...one realising that the other is the other because of him...and the other realising that the one is the one because of him," he added.
