So much so, that a lot of times, we ended up completing the shoot way before the schedule itself. Jeetuji has always been a pleasure to work with and I admire his extraordinary energy and zeal of motivation that he continues to inspire us with.”

She also revealed her passion for bikes and said, "I have loved riding bikes since my childhood. My sister Barkha, who made 'Sanam Teri Kasam' specially added the bike scene in it because of my desire. I used to wake up in the morning take my bike and go for rounds. I was the Bandra girl with a bike. I owned a Yamaha and once, when I was busy shooting, my younger sister tried to give it a ride and hurt herself. So, my mother returned the bike to the person we took it from and said that we didn’t want it in the house."
The actress, who has been the leading lady in films like Aasha and Kalicharan, will even be seen lip-syncing to contestant Arunita’s voice as she sings her iconic song, 'Sheesha ho ya dil ho.’ Take a look!
