In addition, she also shares she gave only one take for the sequence as it was very emotional. “I told Vishnu Sir I would want to do only one take. He decided to take my close-up first to capture the emotions. While the camera was on me, I could hear sniffles all around me because the entire crew, including the junior artists, all other co-stars, despite not being in the frame, were all teary, even though they weren’t supposed to cry. We all resonated with the feeling of immense gratitude for the sacrifice of Captain Vikram Batra, it didn’t feel like we were performing, we relived July 11th, 1999,” she said.
