The filmmaker also shared a sneak-peek into the kind of relationship she shares with Kangana: "I respect Kangana Ranaut a lot as an actor. I feel that there is a humane side to her which she doesn''t want to show to anyone. The reason she doesn''t want to show her side, because I think if someone keeps bouncing what you said on phone or Twitter, what will you do? It''s like a call centre heckling you with phone calls after phone calls. Eventually what will you do? You would switch off your phone or you would shout back and I think that''s the whole issue.
