“I start praying to every God out there. I don’t even leave out Hanumanji. I even start chanting mantras, like the Gayatri Mantra, On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan starts scolding me. ‘How is he bowling? Bowling should be according to the fielding. This is not right. I must call a team meeting’, he mutters. I just stand there, not knowing what to do,” she said.

“Shah Rukh starts chatting about random things, makes fun, and doesn’t scream at anyone. In the end, he just says, ‘Play well’. Meeting over.”
