"Initially, I was under a lot of pressure about Deeksha having done seven films. I was nervous about how I was doing? Whether I was good or not? How would I do a certain thing? So, I was breaking my head about everything. So I was very nervous," the 23-year-old said in an interview.
However, workshops and his experience as assistant director helped Armaan sail through.
"But with time, I shared my assistant experience with her, she shared her acting experience. Acting is reacting and as the friendship between us grew, it became very easy. We were on the same page, had common goals, and had done a workshop in Goa. So it slowly became a lot of fun," said the grandson of legendary Raj Kapoor.
Deeksha, a finalist in the 2009 Femina Miss India contest, has so far featured in Tamil and Telugu films, while Armaan assisted Karan Johar on My Name Is Khan and Student of the Year and Shakun Batra on Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu.
Directed by Arif Ali, Lekar Hum Deewana Dil will hit theatres July 4.
