On being asked about her experience working with Nawazuddin and Ritesh Batra, Sanya said, “I had a really good experience working with Ritesh Batra and Nawaz sir. It was a huge thing for me to work with an actor like him and it was nerve wracking for me. I thought this is just my second film and I was in doubt whether I will be able to do acting or not. On first day of shoot, whether I will be able to deliver a dialogue or not.”
“Initially, I was a bit nervous working with him because he is very good actor. So I stalked him, I watched all his interviews to know how he prepares for his roles so that I could chill out working alongside,” she added.
