Chauhan then convinced the production team to free her from the shoot early. But things somehow got delayed.
So she personally went to all the actors involved in the final scene. She apprised Kapoor of the situation.
“It was a very stressful day and when Shahid and the whole team supported me in wrapping up my part as soon as possible, it made me realise that small gestures by big stars mean a lot to an aspiring talent,” Chauhan later said in a statement.
“Shahid didn’t even take a second to respond when I told him about my situation and was quick to start the shot so that I could reach for my play on time. He even wished me luck for my theatre performance,” she added.
