Talking about movies, Sahil avers, “Films are always a good medium as it gives an actor the liberty to perform. There are no deadlines to meet at the end of the day in movies, and this is the best part of it.”
Sahil plays the lead in Mukkadarpur Ka Majnu and he describes, “The movie is about a teenage love story with all kinds of emotions involved. The film gives out a strong message and will cater to audiences of all ages. It is a story on relationships and also has high family values.
