Talking about reuniting with Gurmeet Choudhary on sets after a long time, the actress added, “It was such a different experience from what happened 11 years ago. We were immature, used to keep laughing and fighting. While working this time, I realised that we have matured as an actor. There was no motive to overwhelm the other actor with your acting, and we were giving each other space to deliver, that was the best part.”
