For this sequence, Srishti aka Jaya was supposed to do a traditional dance along with other actors. For some reason, the choreographer couldn’t turn up at the last minute and we were in a fix. Being a dancer, I showed them some simple steps which the actors mastered in a matter of minutes and we were able to complete the shoot without any hindrance. My on-screen character of Samar is also very helpful towards everyone around him and that’s also how I am in real life.”
