“I don’t think I have enough superlatives to tell you just how much fun it has been to work with Prajakta Koli. Interestingly, when I met her for the first time during the auditions, I didn’t think we would get along, because it seemed like she is not someone who would open up on the first meeting,” Rohit said.
“But after our readings, we realised that we are both really snarky, cocky people, and we basically bonded on that. After that, the journey was a complete laugh riot,” he added.
