"I have become a fan of my lead pair, Ali Fazal and Rhea Chakraborty!" quipped Acharya, apparently the leading lady has completely impressed the director, "Rhea is young, and when I saw her at audition I felt her raw energy which I personally liked about her. Before starting the shoot of the film, I kept workshop for 6 weeks. During workshop we used to rehearse each scene day and night. I am glad that during these workshops each actor contributed their 100%, no doubt there was lot of time invested but no one ever complained about it!"
Ask Rhea and she has her own reasons for not having complained, "There were many reputed actors who were rehearsing over 150 times for a scene, so for that I had to rehearse at least 300-400 times, right? I just felt I need more practice. It was tiresome but also fun." She further adds, "Sometimes during our workshop Ramesh (Sippy) sir used to come by that time the fun was double, his suggestions were very useful for us. In fact, we used to wait when Ramesh sir will come and guide us!" Being guided by the man who gave our country, SHOLAY, is certainly a dream for debutantes all over!
