Things happen when they should.
You don’t need to run after anything. The child is in the learning stage. She shares her dressing room with the veterans. He will go there and learn from them. No need to hurry. The big players that are already out there are doing pretty well, while others get the opportunity once they’re noticed.” said Rashid.
