He used to tell me that he would cast me one day in films," Ojas tells us.

Gays are noy always portrayed in a well researched or rounded manner in films, be it Hindi or Tamil, and didn't he have apprehensions about the role? He responds, Shankar ji vision is different. I do agree that in Bollywood, we are shown in a demeaning  manner in films. But what Shankar ji offered me was an awesome character where I play myself in love triangle. That's the main reason I agreed to go on board, In fact, I was brought into Ai for Amy Jackson styling. Incidentally, I turned an actor," Ojas says.
