“What made the film so memorable is the team that collaborated together. It was one of the most memorable shoots in terms of learning team collaboration. Everybody was so energetic, giving and supportive of each other,” she recalled.

Yami shared that the film led her to root for roles that have substance.

“It helped me explore myself as an actor. I remember the process of preparing for ‘Vicky Donor’. We had workshops and we were so thorough with the script. After packing up we would sit with Shoojit da (Sircar)and Juhi (Chaturvedi) and work on upcoming scenes. It taught me to listen to my instincts and be fearless in my choices. It was a path-breaking script. I credit the film for strengthening my desire to be part of such stories that have depth and impact,” she said.

She said the film’s director Shoojit Sircar was one of the main reasons why she had said yes to the movie.

“I had watched ‘Yahaan’ and I thought it was a beautiful film. When I had just heard the concept of ‘Vicky Donor’ and I had auditioned for it, my instincts said ‘I wish I get this part’. The concept was so fresh and the script was so funny,” Yami recalled.

“Bhai kamaal ka Single aur Singer hai…” was Shah Rukh’s reply.

Among several other interesting questions, SRK was asked who he would love to work with — Martin Scorsese or Christopher Nolan. His reply, again, was a cryptic one, and many users felt he is hinting at a possible collaboration with Rajkumar Hirani in the future.

Replying to the question about Scorsese or Nolan, Shah Rukh tweeted: “Wow both are awesome and I have met them… but Raju apna sa lagta hai… nahi?”
