It was one of the first auditions."

The actor shared, “I gave an audition for this film. I remember I went to meet a producer in his room in the center. Mujhse pehle aur mujhse baad bhi 15-15 minute baad bhi ladke unse mil rahe the toh unhone ek sheet diya tha ki dialouge bolo. Hindi aati hai? Ji sir aati hai, Dialouge bola phir, phir bola dance aata hai? Ji sir aata hai, karke dikhao. Unhone bola, Koi bhi gaana apne mann m socho or karke dikhao. (Before and after me, every 15 minutes, boys were meeting them, so they gave them a sheet to speak a dialogue. 'Do you know Hindi?' 'Yes, sir, I do.' I said the dialogue, then they asked, 'Do you know how to dance?' 'Yes, sir, I do. Show it.' They said, 'Think of any song in your mind and perform it’).'"
