“Koi important scene hoga toh wo ek di pahle se uske baare mei sochte rahenge discuss karenge. I was like inke jaise artist agar itni mehnet karte hain toh I am toh newcomer. (If it is an important scene that it coming up, he will start pondering over it a day in advance. I was like, if an artist like him is putting in so much effort then I am a newcomer).”
Still he has those nerves and puts in the effort. He makes notes, I learnt from him that never stop learning in life. Though he is a master, he is a student. I wasn’t nervous at all. On set he was just my papa and I was playing with him.”
She concluded by wishing him the best of health, stating “I just want him to recover completely.”
