Talking about the experience Mehta said – “It’s escalating to say the least. There’s nothing more satisfying when a bunch of teenagers come up to you after the show and tells they get moved and inspired, click pictures with you. The feeling can’t be explained. I would feel lucky if I manage to bring up even one percent of their unique passion to life”.
