“There was another take on the song where I’m laying down laughing and I have to get up and sing a song. Bhansali was very clear that you have to capture every beat of the song. He is a musical director. He used to say: you will fall into this rhythm, you will lift your head and you will laugh at it. I gave 45 to 50 feeds in one day and my back was really broken.
