The Pathaan actor spoke about his close relationship with both directors and the production house, Yash Raj Films.

In an interview for her YouTube channel, Smriti told Sucharita Tyagi her experience of filming inside the actor’s study at Mannat. She said, “This is really like indicative of Shah Rukh Khan and who he is a person, is the hospitality was A-plus. I mean, there were people who helped us get situated. We had our camera crew and everyone there who can handle all of the lighting and do all of that but there were snacks available to us.”

She continued, “Chai was served and then the best thing that I would say that really was like a lesson to me, to be honest, was when he walked in the room, he knew the name of every single person on my crew, and he’d shake everyone’s hand and he greeted every one by name and I was like, I don’t know if I can do that. I don’t know if I’m that on top of it that I walk into a room and I know everybody’s name and who am I compared to Shah Rukh Khan. He was very respectful of everyone’s craft and their time and it was just A-plus.”

Smriti, who is the daughter of filmmaker Jag Mundhra, has previously co-directed the documentary A Suitable Girl. She was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject for St Louis Superman in 2020. Smriti is also the executive producer and creator of Netflix’s reality series Indian Matchmaking.
