challenging because this was not just a dance sequence but I also had to emote my pain of losing my love to a virus and yet dance my heart out with her.

Also, it’s a treat directing him for he exactly gives me what I want.” He further added, “It was so satisfying to hear from Aadil when he told me that what he achieved physically wasn’t his best and that he could have been a lot better but the crunch of time didn’t give him the chance to do so. However, wait for a few more months and you will see him at his ‘lean muscular’ best.”
