To which, Nawazuddin replied: "Sir Paulo Coelho. I have read your books 'The Alchemist' and also watched the film 'Veronika decides to Die' based on your novel. I have always been an ardent fan of your writing and it's an honour to be noticed and mentioned by someone like you. I don't have words to describe the feeling."
