Vishal wanted to get Konkana on board, but Ekta was against it. But Vishal persisted and she relented after a long discussion.
Ekta says, “I did protest. I thought she would be arty, but when I saw the rushes, I admitted my folly to Vishal and promptly called her. I am a fan now. She is spectacular.”
