She said that he would work with the director and the writer to develop the scene, but then he would add his own touches when he was on set. As the conversation progressed further, she recalled having a conversation with director Shoojit Sircar, director of the film Piku. Shoojit told Sutapa, “Bachchan saab is very structured and really prepared when he comes, and Irrfan improvised, and he got really upset. Then they became friends.”
