According to sources, director Maneesh Sharma had an easy time explaining his role to the actor while for Sushant too, stepping into his character’s shoes was a cakewalk. Our source says, “Sushant hails from Patna while his live-in sweetheart Ankita Lokhande hails from Indore. He has been quite open about his relationship just like in the film. They have stood by each other through thick and thin.
