When I auditioned for it, I didn’t know what it was for. The thing that I get the most attracted to is the idea of the show. In CAT, I could offer way more than I did in other projects. After two rounds of audition, I really wanted to do it and I am lucky to have got this part.”
- In an interview, while talking about his co-actor Randeep Hooda in the series CAT, Danish said,
Randeep is a big actor who is committed to his art. Even on the sets, he was so immersed in his character. I wanted to perform better and not let him feel that I am lacking somewhere. He used to be punctual on the sets and give me feedback on my scenes. And, sharing the screen space with him is just so surreal.”

Soon, I’ll be starting a documentary in Benaras. There’s another show which will hit a popular OTT platform next year. Besides these, I am also auditioning and reading scripts.”
