Sharing her experience while shooting Avneet says Rani did not panic at all if she missed dialogues at times or if she wanted another take. “She would boost my confidence and tell me that we would do it another time.” Recalling behind-the-camera moments, she said there was one birthday scene where we were supposed to apply cake on each other’s faces. “Rani Ma’am told me not to apply too much cake on her face during the scene. But even after the shot we continued applying cake on each other.”
