However, Mrunal admitted feeling intimidated while working with actors she greatly admires on screen.

“This happens because of your assumptions, presumptions, fears, and preconceived notions about the power dynamics, spoken and unspoken. Territorial behavior and the mistaken idea of seeing the person as a threat can also make collaborating harder,” he explained in an interaction with indianexpress.com.
