"Everything about Mira is so aesthetically solid. My association with her has become very deep because of the two projects that I am involved in. I am not going to say it was easy, but I will say it was satisfying and I have learnt a lot. You always learn in her presence," Namit told IANS.

Further talking about his experience of working with Mira, he said: "I can't even tell you how Mira communicates with her actors. Such beautiful words she chooses. But making music was equally beautiful, especially writing lyrics with my mom was really fun."

"Mira is one of those special people in the world who understands human relationships. She knows human beings so well. That's why you can never lie to her. You have to be truthful. She forces you to be the best version of yourself. You cannot be lazy. That's one of the best things about her. You have to bring your A game to the table each time," she added.
