I have been a fan of him since his 'Urvashi' [Humse Hai Muqabla] days. To be with someone like Prabhu Dheva is indeed an altogether different ballgame. He is very spontaneous. As an actor, it took me a little bit of time, not as much to adjust but to understand what he expected from me. Once I managed that, it was a matter of adapting to his world."

On working with Ajay Devgn she said, "Not really, there was nothing like an ice breaking moment per se. He is someone who is very professional, comes on time, does his work and leaves. No wonder, he is one of the biggest stars of the country. People like him have reached where they are due to these very virtues. You can't get such combination and platform for a film. No ways I would have turned down Action Jackson."
