Since GAME wasn't following a routine Bollywood treatment when it came to shot taking or dialogue delivery, Abhishek Bachchan was inquisitive (not to be mistaken for interfering) about the way first time director Abhinay Deo was approaching scenes.
"There is a lot of subtlety in GAME. No one is shouting out there and the humour too is handled in a different manner altogether. Silences here are louder than the spoken words due to which Abhishek did ask me a few times whether I was sure of what I was doing", admits Abhinay, "He wasn't challenging me though, he was just plain curious. When I explained my point of view, he was convinced and delivered a scene with full commitment."
So impressed was Abhishek with the written material of GAME that once he started shooting for the film, he followed director's instructions to the T. For Abhinay too this turned out to be an effective way of working since he was sticking to the script and hence his actors were happy with what was being shot on a daily basis.
"Things change when you start doing something which is not in the script. This is when doubts start creeping in the mind of the actors. However none of that happened in case of GAME as the script was water tight and hence there was no requirement to change anything at all. This was also one of the major reasons why Abhishek had complete faith in me."
