Vijay Varma and Jaideep Ahlawat spoke about working with Kareena Kapoor

In an interview with Film Companion, Varma spoke about his experience of working with Kareena Kapoor. He said, "She is a very switch on switch off kind of an actor. I would talk about food with her because that’s her favorite subject to talk about and Sujoy would be like ‘The shot is ready’ and then we’re immediately right there in the scene." The actor stated that Kareena has the ability to change a scene and light up a room with a 'small shift in her demeanor.'


Jaideep, on the other hand, said that he never saw her prepare on the set. "Everybody keeps talking about Geet and Poo but we can’t forget about Omkara. So, you can’t take away from the fact that she has that ease to be on set and have that disconnection also. You can’t see her preparing", he said.

Meanwhile, Jaane Jaan is directed by Sujoy Ghosh and is based on the Japanese novel The Devotion of the Suspect X.
