      He also revealed that when he was sent the script of the ad, he was a little upset and he did suggest a few changes. But when they didn't agree, he politely said no.

      Talking to Indian Express, Saurab said, "I just used my common sense. I am right now too surprised at how everyone has been lauding me. I was honestly a little upset when I read it (the script). I knew I would never tolerate it if a woman was treated like this in real life, and hence I did not want to do it even on camera. I did suggest a few changes but when they did not agree, I politely said no."
