Actress Ridhima Sud, who will be seen in Zoya Akhtar's next film Dil Dhadkne Do, says the filmmaker is a taskmaster, but is kind and warm too.
Asked if Zoya is a taskmaster on the sets, Ridhima told IANS: "By taskmaster if you mean someone who has a task at hand and likes to get it done, then I guess she is. But there is nothing fascist about her way of getting things done.
"She is kind, warm and intuitive. Her team has a lot of women in every department and the presence of feminine energy on sets really makes a big difference."
The upcoming movie also features established actors like Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma, Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and the director's brother Farhan Akhtar.
"I would like to focus on the positives of being alongside such veterans and talented performers. For a newbie, sharing the space with them in any capacity can only offer a steep learning curve and boost self-confidence," Ridhima said.
