In the video he also revealed that from here on he will make videos on his terms and on his own time. To which it means he will not be uploading with the same consistency as before.

Starting his video he stated, “Main ab kisi bhi event pay nhi jata. Mein kisi award ceremony pay bhi nahi jata ,mujhe kisi bhi podcast ki invitation ati ha mein nahi jata. Main nay Twitter chordia hai, aur mein ney camera use karna bohat kam kardia hai. ( I don’t go to any events anymore, I don’t answer any podcast requests and I have don’t use a camera as often.) Adding further he discussed that the reason he started making Vlogs in the first place was because he enjoyed watching them. Adding that he never thought that through the medium he will be able to fulfill all his wildest dreams. “Ronaldhinio sey milnay sey lekar apni dream bike khareedna”.
He also pointed out that one of the best feelings he experienced through his Youtube career was, when a stranger called him an ‘inspiration’. At the same time he opens up about his own troubles with anxiety and self esteem. “Aik larka jo kisi waqt mein full of life aur optimism hota tha. Ab woh din-ba-din zyada sey zyada vanilla hota ja raha hai. Aur yeh sub bhi vlogging ki waja sey hoa hai.” ( A person who used to be full of life and optimism has become vanilla now. That too is because of Vlogging).
