The actress said: 'Anurag Kashyap has been a good friend for five years. We always wanted to work together. Initially, 'No Smoking' didn't have much for me to do. It was a small role of John's wife. But finally Anurag Kashyap gave me two roles in 'No Smoking' - of John's wife and his secretary.
'Another actress was to play the secretary. He turned two characters into a double role for me. Not just that, he added scenes as the film progressed. I guess someone somewhere likes me.'
