Opening about his character Joshua in the film, he said: “I have been fortunate to collaborate with filmmakers who encourage me to add my creative inputs to their vision of storytelling.

I had bounced this idea off (director) Hitesh (Kewalya) and (producer) Anand Rai sir. I am glad they took this input. Similarly, Shoojit (Sircar) sir was happy with the idea that I would have a lisp in Gulabo Sitabo,” he recalled.

While it required strenuous practice of 40 days, Rajit says Nora finally delivered what was expected of her.

“This was a challenge for both of us because there are people who say that she is good at item numbers, but I know that as a performer she could do anything. Although it was a challenge, she proved herself in this one,” Rajit tells IANS.

He adds: “This song is very different from what Nora has been doing in the past in Bollywood. She has performed mostly western dances, and even if it was a Bollywood song her dance was not typical Bollywood. This is the first time that we got an opportunity to portray Nora in a completely different style. She has performed the way you would see a certain Bollywood dance choreographed by Saroj Khan or Vaibhavi Merchant.” (IANS)
