 Abhishek and I are like the anchors in the plot. I was never more scared of a role. A little bit this or that way, and my character could've toppled over. Thank god Rhea doesn't come across as a bitch. I constantly kept looking at Karan for reassurance. I never had to be directed so closely before.

 There is a lot that goes into my character in Lakshya. I was really excited because I come from an army background. I read every possible book about this war because I was playing a journalist. I also spoke to a couple of journalists.

 Well, first of all it was directed by Mr. Yash Chopra, he's one of India's finest directors. His career spans over five decades and I think for me to be part of this film was an absolute honour. Second, I think the way people think is reflected in their art and is reflected in their cinema. There was a time with Pakistan we were going through a lot of problems, we had a war and we made movies that were war-oriented, we made a lot of films. And I think today with this script, we've reached a stage where people have said' ok, it's time to move on'.
