Don’t you worry Nawaz, as her reason will just brighten your day! The senior actress was all gushing over Nawaz for being a thorough professional and hence matching up to him she had to be alert through the shooting schedule.

In an interview to IANS, Ila Arun gushing over the actor mentioned how Nawaz was always improvising his scenes while he shoots, ultimately taking to another level. Thus matching up to him, was a big thing for her, also she had to stay alert and nail her performance matching up to his standards of acting. Ila Arun said, “I am not one of those actors who believe that acting for a longer time and having experience makes you superior. The style of acting is evolving, performance is evolving and, as an actor, I have to constantly update myself to stay relevant. Nawaz is such a fine actor and I am so impressed by him. In fact, initially, I was sceptical to act with him,” 

She continued, “He is young, his mind is alert and he adds certain nuance in every scene that takes the character to the next level. I, as a senior actor, had to stay on my toes. I had to stay alert to match up to his performance level.”
