Singh reveals why he disappeared from Industry  

He said that Dolly Ki Doli which is my first film got to write.  he said he made a genuine miscalculation by saying ‘no’ to offers that were coming his way because he wanted to do scripts for a film that were “different”.Looking back, he said, “I did not know the industry that well in those days and I had no idea of what I should pursue. I was getting one kind of assignment, but I was interested in doing something else. I should have realized then that my priority was to find a firm footing and not get too adventurous.” he said, “I made several wrong decisions then and did not take up assignments that came my way.
