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
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.
