    ''I wouldn't say he was just protective about me. That he was for sure. But there was a lot more in the way he lightened up the atmosphere on location during the shooting of the tense drama with talks on food and friends and family. He just made life so much easier," she said.

    Aditi feels Bhoomi will play a significant part in reversing gender stereotypes.
