Asked what he had to say when his wife Romi came to know about this, Kapil Dev said, ‘I was a little scared. I thought he was an actor. You are copying a sport and athletics. Do they have this much? But, when I spent time with him, I was surprised how much time he has spent on it. In June and July last year, he spent about eight hours on the cricket field and I was scared. I would like to say that he is not 20 years old and he should not get hurt. I was worried about them. I think where artists and actors come together, they know what to do and how to do it ‘.

He said, ‘He was with me for seven or eight days. During this time he placed a camera in front of me (to record) and asked me how I talk, what I do and how I eat. I think they are fantastic ‘.
Asked if Ranveer shot the classic Nataraja, Kapil said, ‘I think he has worked very hard. I have to see now. I have seen a lot about photographs and other things. These cameramans and these people are good. I was far away from them. We did our part of the story and nothing else.

He said, ‘During his life, he makes a film on you and you don’t know how to react to it. I felt that we are still very young and say ‘man, what is happening? But when the whole team decided, I was also a part of that. My first reaction was, ‘Can we wait? We are very young and everyone has seen us, let’s not make it ‘
