She also added that the passion he had for work, really rubs on you. The way he used to say ‘action’ before every take, would fill up everyone with the same excitement to work throughout the day. His energy was infectious, Smriti told Hindustan Times.
The actress added that she is very fortunate that he directed her in ‘Kaagaz 2’. According to her, he was a complete school in himself. She also revealed that the late actor-director had many plans related to the release of his ambitious film, ‘Kaagaz 2’.
