Talking about it to the Business of Cinema, Sanya said, “In January 2016, we wrapped up the film’s shoot and didn’t have anything to do. So, Fatima and I decided to go on an India darshan. That’s when AK (Aamir Khan) asked us if we would want to intern with him. For a moment, we went totally blank, but then nodded at the offer.

“On some days, we would sit for almost five to six hours at (composer) Pritam’s office working on the background score. Later, we would go with Aamir for dubbing sessions, which would be followed by a meeting with the music or editing team. We would return home by 10 pm. When we went to work, we would listen to stories of how Aamir worked till 4 am.” she added.
