She has put in a lot from lighting to the script, dialogues, to making sure that the actors have their lines ready, to adjusting their clothes, making sure Pankaj has his medicines and meals on time. Looking at Pathak's enormous hand in shaping up the film with hubby director Pankaj, Shahid requested the producers to credit her as an associate director in the film.
Mausam, producer Sheetal Talwar reluctantly admits (Mid Day), "Yes, we are thinking of something on those lines (to bill Pathak as associate director)." Well, that's the loving relationship that Shahid shares with the veteran actress.
Actor Shahid Kapoor, who is presently shooting for his father Pankaj Kapoor's film Mausam, persuades the makers to bill his step-mom actress Supriya Pathak as the associate director for the movie. Pathak has a prominent contribution towards the film Mausam.
