Earlier, Love Aaj Kal actress Sara Ali Khan opened up in an interview about her experience working with co-actor Dhanush, “I haven’t worked with Dhanush very much. We had a short schedule in Banaras. He is such a humble actor, he is also very well-read, well-mannered and more than that he is so talented. He made me hear a lot of his music also, a lot of South Indian music which I have also started listening to. I insisted that he Whatsapp it to me. So, I work out to it sometimes. He is so talented, he composes music, sings songs, writes and of course acts and does it so well. Watching him on set was such a privilege. He was always like one take or two takes okay. He is amazing!”
Expressing her thoughts about Dhanush’s movies, she added, “I have seen four of Dhanush’s films and that ‘Rowdy Baby’ song from Mari 2 is so good. Whoever has not watched the song, needs to watch ‘Rowdy Baby’. I think it’s an outstanding song.”
