The filmmaker wanted a svelte slim and sexy grandmom and the diva fits the bill perfectly. Talking about losing weight for the film, the veteran actress said, “Losing and gaining weight for your characters is not something I recommend, especially after a certain age. But here in Karan’s film, I needed an excuse to lose weight.”

Shabana Azmi and the filmmaker has come together for the first time for Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt starrer. Talking about her character, she said, “It is not a routine grandmother’s role. My character is a very sophisticated upper-class woman. Manish Malhotra has designed some exquisite clothes for me.”
