In her conversation with Connect Cine, Aditi reminisced about the widespread acclaim for her portrayal, attributing the success of her walk to Bhansali’s meticulous involvement, supported by choreographer Kruti Mahesh.

“I owe my thanks to everyone. That tiny sequence from thumri captured everyone’s imagination, something I hadn’t anticipated. And Sanjay sir highlighted the significance of the walk, contributing his wealth of knowledge to the choreography,” she mentioned.

Sanjay’s quest for the perfect scene resulted in an attention to detail that didn’t go unnoticed by the actress. “Even though Kruti Mahesh was choreographing, Sanjay sir was deeply engaged in every aspect, especially about this walk. He made sure the dupatta, waist, and even the timing of the ‘chan’ sound were precisely executed…it was quite amazing,” she added.

One admirer likened the walk to the Kamasutra’s epitome of seduction, while another appreciated the subtlety and grace of Bhansali’s portrayal of allure, contrasting it with more overt and provocative moves seen elsewhere. A fan highlighted, “It’s the poignant turn, combined with those neck and facial expressions.”

Another couldn’t hide their admiration commenting, “I’m hypnotised, her performance is mesmerizing.
