The crew (in India) is just so excited and it had been a very nourishing experience," he said.

Talking about his co-star Nicole Kidman, “She is very friendly. It was just eight months of preparations. We were working relentlessly,” he said. When asked about his plans for 2017, “In 2017, I will be back in Mumbai and will be finishing a movie. That’s the most recent destination. But hopefully, I think Tokyo. It’s fantastic. I have been there before for two days. So now I am going to enjoy more,” he said. Patel has been widely acknowledged for his performance in ‘Lion’.
