Talking about the excitement of finally having to work with the superstar, Neena said, “I am very excited to work with Mr. Bachchan. I shot for only five-six days in Mumbai but then the lockdown happened so I had to return home. I haven’t started my scenes with him yet, but I am very intimidated by him. It’s like when we are waiting for the short, he would be sitting in a corner and I would wonder if I should go close to him, talk to him or not. Should I ask him something or not? It’s actually quite a thing and I think slowly things will be fine for all of us.” 

She further recalled how scared she was of speaking to him when they first met and added, “One day I thought why can’t I sit with Mr. Bachchan, the other actors are sitting with him and talking. So then I gathered some courage and went and sat next to him but then he got busy on his phone, so I silently sat out there. The thing is we, who think that Bachchan will be like this or that, but he is a normal person and I am very happy that I will be working with him.”

Well, we’re super stoked to see these brilliant actors share screen space for the first time.
