Monica Dogra, who is debuting with Aamir’s Dhobi Ghat says that she was nervous at the first time when she met with Aamir. The actress also confessed that in real-life Aamir is very down to earth person. Monica says,

“I was very nervous when I met Aamir. But I knew that I have to get over this quickly because I wanted to do a good job. It was intimidating to be around Aamir but he is so down to earth that after a while it becomes fine,”

Like Monica, Kriti Malhotra, who essays the role of Yasmin in the film, shares a similar sentiment. , Kriti says,

“When I got this film and we went to Aamir’s place for readings and rehearsals, I was so nervous initially because I have seen almost all his films and have been such a great fan. But I got to learn a lot from him.”

Not just this, the actresses share another similarity – both of them never intended to get into acting.

While Monica is a professional singer, Kriti worked as a costume assistant for films. Both were selected by Kiran through unusual mediums.

“I selected Monica when I saw her pictures in a magazine and Kriti from Facebook. It was then that both were called for auditions and they were outstanding.”
