In response to showcasing Mumbai’s unique culture, Khalid shares his intent to explore the city’s renowned Bollywood culture and engage in local experiences. “I expect it to be very energetic.

Overcoming challenges, he notes, requires finding motivation and a deeper purpose. In this case, the overwhelming support from the Sri Lankan people fueled the project, highlighting the power of connecting with a community’s aspirations.
