Our shoot kept on getting postponed. She was doing ‘Force 2’ at that time and John was injured. Shraddha was totally my second choice. I knew she could play a 17-year-old and a 45-year-old too,” said Apoorva.
Speaking about his experience of working with Shraddha for the first time, Siddhanth said: “I was cast with Sonakshi Sinha but she could not do the film so my sister came on board which was the best that happened to my life and my career. She has been working so hard to pull it off.”
