The Lootcase (2020) actor reveals, “Something that stopped me (earlier) from composing was my limited knowledge about guitar. I only knew a few chords. I really enjoy playing it but I am not a trained guitarist. So, I took some lessons from YouTube. But over the years, I have kept writing my own songs even though I never put them out in public.”
Happy to have hung out with his four-year-old daughter, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, in the previous year, the actor confides that the pandemic introduced with it parenting challenges too. He says, “Kids of different ages had different challenges. But things must have been simpler for the parents of a toddler.”

Hence, parents could work on their relationship with their children. They no longer had that excuse of not having enough time to invest in the relationship.”
