And we are lying him that we are making a movie, I am getting scared.

I have solution for your fear. I had read it in some book.

If we are scared of someone,

just imagine him as naked, you will not be scared of him anymore.

Mr. Sobers, We need to talk to Anushku about the script.

Anushku never talks to anyone either in person or over the phone!

Anushku is a famous novelist, we want people to know more about him through our movie.

We can find the gender easily, nowadays medical technology is so advanced..

Cant you say it just by removing the undies ?

Medical technology it seems... idiot..
