dialogues from his films," Kagti told PTI.

am a film buff. I don't like horror. I find love stories
boring," she said.

Lakshya and Armaan. But I never got time to talk to him or
tell him that I am his huge fan," she said.

"I think you will have to come up with something very
special, as he has done everything. So you will have to be
very special to grab his fancy," Kagti said.
