Quoted by IANS, he said, “Sridevi was a great artist. I still remember, whenever I used to rehearse with her, she would get all the steps immediately. On the other hand, I needed at least six to seven rehearsals. To make it easier for her, I used to tell her that I will practice with the choreographer, but she was so humble and kind that she insisted on doing the practice with me as many times as needed to get the steps right. That was the kind of respect she gave.” ALSO READ: Janhvi Kapoor REACTS To Being Compared To Her Late Mom Sridevi; It’s Like Reaching To The Stars, I Am Flattered’
