“When they approached me with the role, I was not very sure I could do it. I wasn’t sure whether I would look the part or do justice to it, but after I met Rajkumar Hirani, all my fears and doubts were put to rest. He made me feel so much at ease, and I knew I would be able to do it. Even though mine is a guest appearance, working for the film has been a great experience” she added.
