“Aditya is a perfectionist when it comes to acting. There were multiple instances when I was good with a particular scene and he wanted to do another two takes because he wanted to give a better performance,” Basu said.

“Regarding ventriloquism, I had offered him to use a dub artist but instead he decided to learn the art himself, which is not an easy task. He trained against a third generation ventriloquist, one of the famous ones in the country and is now a trained ventriloquist himself! There were times in the shoot where I had to tell him to tone it down a little bit, otherwise it would seem like a dub artist had done it. Aditya Roy Kapur is the kind of person that never takes shortcuts and works towards what he wants,” he added.
