Sanjay Mishra is an amazing co-star: Anshuman Jha
Actor Anshuman Jha, who is sharing screen space with Sanjay Mishra in the upcoming film “Angrezi Mein Kehte Hain”, says the veteran actor — one of the “finest” — is an amazing co-star.
“There were so many instances and anecdotes we discussed and in some way or the other tried incorporating it in the film. He chuckled about how in his times expressing love was so different from now and I would keep him up to date on how things work today and especially the power of the internet,” Anushman said.
“Sanjayji, apart from being the finest actor in the country today, is the most amazing co-star one can have. Getting appreciation from an artiste like Sanjay ji is something I hold very special,” he added.
In the film, directed by Harish Vyas, Anshuman will be seen playing a character who tries to teach a 55-year-old man how to say “I Love You” in English.
The film also stars Shivani Raghuvanshi, Ekavali Khanna and Pankaj Tripathi.
‘Dilbaro’ left Soni Razdan emotional
