Child actor, Shubham plays the role of Bulbul, son of Buchi. We get a glimpse of Bulbul in the trailer, which clearly shows Shubham’s performance as the child struggling to study in the midst of peer pressure. He has played this role with amazing sincerity. He’ll surely be one to look out for in the coming future.
