Recalling how he grew up, the actor said he joined bad gangs and it was until he moved from the community he saw life in a different way.

According to Jigan, he knows a lot about the police because some of them are his friends. He noted that a policeman who earns little and has a family and siblings to take care of will go into crimes.

He said:

"I know so much about the police. I know what they are going through and I know that they can't come out to tell the government what they are going through. They get little payment and this is what leads most of them to do bad things."
