The multi-hyphenate KJo, who is often regarded as the most powerful man in the Hindi film industry, also shared that he feels very protective about Ayan, "I love you Ayan and feel protective about you as much as I do for my twins. I know the decade (a whole decade) of work you have put into your film 'Brahmastra'".
