And no one sits idle in front of him. He will keep improvising his scenes or help his co-actors.”

He takes around one and half to two hours to read the script so that everything goes on smoothly. During our reading session, I was very nervous and was shivering. He kept motivating me and kept telling me to smile. He takes note of the smallest thing and help you to improve. He has brought a lot of improvement in me. Because of him, now when I go for auditions, if I am going wrong, I immediately refer to what Sir had said and correct myself. He is a perfectionist and very particular about time. If he comes to the sets on time being a senior artist, then why shouldn’t why.”
