It is easy for someone of her stature to throw their weight about as and when they please but that was so not the case. She is a warm, humble person who happened to be an absolute pleasure to work with in the movie. Despite her humongous experience in this field, she is still very observant and intent on learning new things. She will always be someone I’ll have immense respect for. On the other hand, working with Yogi Babu was immensely entertaining. We shared a sense of camaraderie on the set.
