Actor Vicky Kaushal, who is best known for performance in award-winning film Masaan, is likely to star opposite Alia Bhatt in Meghna Gulzar's next film. The movie will reportedly be based on Harinder Sikka's book Calling Sehmat
"I have done films in the past which were more about women and more soft. So for me, Talvar was completely out of my comfort zone. I was actually scared of doing this as I had to step out of my comfort zone," Meghna Gulzar said
Non-commercial films such as Masaan and Talvar also won accolades. Richa Chadha won the Editor's Choice Performer of the Year award for Masaan while Irrfan Khan received the same award for Piku. Meghna Gulzar, who made Talvar, received the Filmmaker of the Year award
"To be honest, Meghna's films are much ahead of mine, technique and expression wise. I am more of a writer. She is more of a filmmaker. My films are verbose because I am a writer. I talk much. Films don't talk much. They talk to you visually and that difference is there," said Gulzar
