Writer-director Raaj Shaandilyaa, who is making his directorial debut with Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Dream Girl, is all praise for producer Ekta Kapoor.
Interestingly, Raaj had initially approached Ekta for Dream Girl but she ended up offering him Jabariya Jodi as well.
He reveals, “I had met Ekta Kapoor for Dream Girl, she loved the film. But she told me that she wants me to also write dialogues for Jabariya Jodi. I agreed for it. I am working with her on another project. So it has been a great experience for me. She is extremely professional and gives the creative freedom to others. She is one of the most sensible and intelligent producers we have in Bollywood.”
He adds. “She told me to tell her the vision I have for the film. She wanted me to make this film as I have envisioned. She has been very supportive of this film. I really admire this quality about her. She is very down to earth and friendly. I’ve really enjoyed working with her and I look forward to working with her again.”
Directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa and produced by Ekta Kapoor, and Shobha Kapoor, Dream Girl features Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bharucha. It will release on September 13.
