The film begins with a heartening note by the actor, who took a moment to express his appreciation to his loyal fan base, fondly known as the Jammwalians.
Addressing this, he said, “I stand here today, humbled and immensely grateful to all the Jammwalians out there who have stood by my side and supported me unconditionally. Your love and encouragement have been the driving force behind my passion for cinema. Without you, none of this would be possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
