Right from the very first day, our bond was instant. During a particular scene, wherein Neena ji’s character gets very emotional, I impulsively rose from my seat, gave her a warm hug and whispered, “I love you, Mom.” This imporvisation delighted all, including Satish ji even though it was not originally scripted. Working alongside Neena ji is always amazing as as laughter and joyfullness fills the air. The experiences we shared during this project are truly priceless.“
