We became friends from the day 1 we met. She is in a true sense a cool, genuine and real person. You can connect with her easily. We used to chat about everything around the world. Keep pulling each other’s legs for random things which was definitely not for training purpose :) it was just for fun. I had a great time shooting with her. We didn’t train together cause she required a very different hardcore training for her running and I had to do weight training separately to look much bigger as a army officer. With Taapsee I learnt how to be a disciplined committed and a really hardworking actor."
