Debutant Abuli Mamaji is set to steal our hearts with his performance in Nikhil Pherwani directorial Ahaan. The movie showcases the journey of a young man with Down Syndrome and how he forms an unusual friendship with a middle-aged man, Ozzy, who suffers from OCD.
The debutant who is gearing up to spread happiness in the lives of the audience with the wholesome movie opened up about the challenges and his aspirations of becoming an actor.
Mamaji shares, “People look at us differently the moment they know that we suffer from a disability, no matter what it is. It’s always been a hard path to achieve our dreams because of it.

The debutant thanked the team of Ahaan for being patient and helping him throughout the shooting of the film. “I’m indeed very lucky that I was given the opportunity to work with people who have worked in the industry for decades. I went through lots of training and workshops to get into the character of Ahaan. I would like to thank Arif sir, Nikhil sir and my entire team for the patience and help throughout my entire course of shooting,” says Abuli.
