"Raj had a crazy passion for his work and when a great idea hit him, there would be a sparkle in his eye and a new spring in his step. And he had that look his eye and that unabating high energy all through the writing and making of #AkkadBakkad. His belief and passion for the project, is what drove him and is there for all to see in the show."
Mandira further shared how it breaks her heart to see that Raj is not there to witness his labour of love and continued:
