Talking about Rajkummar Rao, Sheetal Sharma said that he's one of the most casual and adorable actors he has ever met. "He's the most non-fussy actor you can ever come across. He's the kind who wants to experiment with his look. He never has hang-ups like, 'I want you to chop the hair in a certain way.' For instance, I got him those fake earrings. So, he said, 'No, I won't wear these fake earrings.' And on the spot, he went and got his ears pierced. Rajkummar is very spontaneous and right out there to experiment with things. On the sets, he'll spot any shoes and say they are very aged and he'll pick some random guy's shoes and wear them to look like a part of the character. Things like these are very interesting about him."
Among Rajkummar Rao and Kangana Ranaut, who is often glued to their phones? Answering this question, Sheetal Sharma revealed, "It's Rajkummar, he's crazy. Half the time he is on his phone watching some Netflix show or some films. He also has a list of films that he's looking for and he'll ask you, 'Did you watch this?' and he's also an impulsive shopper."
Is Kangana also an impulsive shopper? Sharma said, "Kangana is a silent shopper. She's like those ones, who'll just walk out and quietly go and shop some Valentino shoes and suddenly she'll walk on the set wearing her Tom Ford dress and we'll be like, 'Oh! When did you get this' and she'll be like, 'I went last evening.'"
On the work front, the designer now has Ayushmann Khurrana-Bhumi Pednekar's film Bala on his plate, along with Hurdang and Made In China.
