He spoke highly of the actor and believed she was simply fabulous. He highlighted how focused and disciplined she was when it came to working commitments and execution.
In an interview with Indian Express, Akshay Kumar said, “Aishwarya is not a diva. She does not throw tantrums. She does not come with any baggage whatsoever and is an extremely easy person to work with. It’s refreshing to work with someone with whom I have not worked with for a while”.
