Dar Gai says, “I don’t want to sound cheesy, but it was one of my favourite experiences ever because when you have the right people on board and professionals who believe in what they are doing and why they are doing it, it is then that the magic starts. Shakun Batra (director of Gehraiyaan) is an incredible director. He doesn’t just have the creative energy, he also has a command over his craft. With Siddhant Chaturvedi and Deepika Padukone, I could play around with a lot of interesting techniques.”

“And of course, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Deepika Padukone are extremely collaborative people. When you work on a new project, you always question whether the actress will trust you and it doesn’t matter how experienced they are. Some people have a great experience, like Deepika, and they just ask you ‘Why are you doing that? What is the purpose?’ If you have an answer, they trust you completely. Not even once did Deepika ask ‘Why should I do it?’ or tell me ‘I know how to do it’. I think we were just co-creating this – Siddhant, Deepika, Shakun and I,” Dar Gai concludes.
