Working with Nitesh
Revisiting his 2015 show with Nitesh, Saud said, “In the show, he played a lawyer and I was the kid who brought up a case against the school. I had a lot to learn from him. He would guide and motivate me – both off and on camera. It was a great experience. He would tell me I was performing better than him – of course, that was not the case. He always asked me to be as brave as my character in that show. He wanted me to always stand up for the right. He was very transparent. We are really going to miss him.”
