He hopes to be a role model for his community. "I get a lot of direct messages from Kashmir asking what are the ways to be in Bollywood. If all goes well, I can be their role model, for my community, for Kashmiris," said the budding actor.
"Ever since I was a boy, I was a fan of (AR Rahman). I had his cassettes and CDs. I have, all my life, been a fan of sir. I hoped that one day I would get into this profession and I wished and hoped that someday I'd do some film that Rahman sir would do music in it," he said.
Ehan continued: "How little did I know that I would get a film produced by Rahman sir and with music and story by him! It's a dream come true for any actor who is starting out. Once you meet him in person you will be spellbound by him. I am overwhelmed."
