He actually said how his daughter was watching the film and complained how he doesn’t spend enough time at home. He added, “I told my daughter she would also have to learn Hindi and by that time, I had finished watching about 50 minutes of the film. I had read a couple of comic books on The Archies and knew of Betty and Veronica. But it’s not a part of my growing up years, I saw Motu Patlu, Ram Balram.”
