After so many years I am going to BTV. It feels like I’m going back to my own home, to my own people. I can’t explain how this feeling is.
I am getting emotional every moment. Today I am reminded of the days left behind by BTV. I remember many people leaving. I remember the words of the hero Raj RazzakBhai. He is the one who shaped my later life. I am satisfied with my life. I wish everyone to pray for the best for my family.”Aliraj won the National Film Award for his performance in multiple films.
