He also spoke about his favourite scene from Udta Punjab:
“In Udta Punjab I loved the scene in which Shahid’s character (Tommy) meets Alia’s character. That was a scene that again was very difficult to write. There’s a lot of anticipation to that scene. You know you build these two characters for like more than hour and now they are going to meet and also the fact that when the audiences are watching it, they are going to wonder Shahid and Alia kab milenge, you know.”
