To everyone who watched #Almost, our new short film, thank you. This is very close to my heart, for I've felt it up close and I'm so happy with all the love that's been pouring in. I still find it hard to believe how much it has impacted people. Honestly, I wasn't even sure if I'd put it up on YouTube when we shot it, because I didn't know what it's going to look like, if it's even going to be worth anyone's time. But the messages I've been waking up to have made me smile ear to ear and at times also made me tear up a little. We shot this in 11 minutes from our own homes, simultaneously. Creating this, being in that moment for those 11 minutes was pure catharsis. Watching it move so many people feels overwhelming. I know I'm going to get back to making funny content tomorrow and these passion projects only happen once in a blue moon but for now, this feels beautiful. Thank you for that. Thank you to everyone who helped me amplify this and were so generous with all the love. I'm also so awestruck over @shibani_bedi , I could watch it 100 more times only for her. Also glad to have discovered @whoisshobby who edited this with all his heart. And to everyone who's loved and lost, a big tight hug. . If you haven't seen #Almost yet, I'd really appreciate if you took out 6 minutes from your day and watch it on my YouTube channel.
