Eid al-Adha, which is also known as the festival of sacrifice, is being celebrated today. When asked what message he wishes to convey to his fans and followers on this occasion, Rezwan said to business voip, ‘My message would be stay away from tension, maintain peace, spread love, and help people.’

Speaking about the sacrifices he has made in his life, he shared, ‘I love travelling and spending quality time with my family, but I am unable to do so because of my hectic shooting schedule. I have sacrificed that. Also, many a times I had to skip my relatives’ marriage or anniversary parties because of work commitments. They think if I want I can easily take time out for the occasion, but it’s not the case. I was genuinely not able to manage time. I do feel guilty about it, but then I had to sacrifice.’
What is that one thing that he will never sacrifice even for his career? ‘Relationships. Recently, my grandmother passed away. After her demise, there were some rituals to be followed and I sacrificed my work for that because the person who left us is never going to come back…apart from shedding tears and being with family members what else can one do…I was close to my grandmother….’
