Many artists admire me and thank me for introducing the concept of vanity van.”
He had said, “I often faced difficulties while shooting at (outdoor) locations. There will be no place to change clothes, no toilet and no place to eat. The actors had to spend time on the sets amidst the sun and the filth.”
