Mumbai, Feb 25: Actress Swara Bhasker played the role of Payal in Aanand L. Rai’s Tanu Weds Manu, which released a decade ago on this day. She recalls having a great time on the set with her colleagues while shooting the film.

Among anecdotes she recalls are her conversations with R. Madhavan, the lead actor of the film.

“I remember really enjoying my conversations with Maddy sir, being awestruck by Jimmy (Shergill) sir’s swag, and getting pranked all the time by Deepak Dobriyal, Eijaz Khan and the ADs (assistant directors),” shares Swara.

She spoken in glowing terms about filmmaker Rai, too.

“Aanand sir is one of the most wonderful directors for an actor to work with, because he allows actors to discover nuances in their character. Relationships between characters are his strength and it’s a pleasure to be directed by him. Plus he runs really happy sets with very positive energy, and spoils his actors silly, so it’s a real pleasure to work with him,” she told IANS.

Post Tanu Weds Manu, Swara went on to collaborate with Rai in Raanjhanaa and Tanu Weds Manu Returns.

Madhavan, too, took to social media to rejoice 10 years of the film on Thursday, and wrote: “Thank you Aanand …for giving us all our own little piece of history and fondest of memories . God bless you mere bhai.”
