Imtiaz Ali was reluctant to share his bag of fragrant lime with the rest of his team

Imtiaz Ali doesn’t seem to be someone who believes that sharing is caring. Sources say the filmmaker is very reluctant to share his bagful of fragrant lime during a recent shoot schedule.

According to sources the filmmaker has been shooting near the Jaipur Highway and loves to feast on the lime, flown in specially from Kolkata.

A unit member says, “Imtiaz has of late become very fond of limes. It adds fragrance and a special flavour to the food. He carries them in his pouch all day.”

And apparently the entire unit has been eying Imtiaz’s pouch to add a zing to their dhaba food. The source adds, “Everyone is lusting after the limes. Since the film is being shot at real locations, often the unit has to have dhaba meals. All eyes then turn towards the director.”

Imtiaz was apparently a good sport initially and didn’t mind sharing his treasure trove with the others but later turned annoyed at everyone looting his share.
