She was last seen with with Akshay Kumar inJolly LLB 2 in which she had a small cameo but got massive acclaim for her role.
Speaking about being a part of the film, Sayani said, “Just working with such a splendid cast by itself was out of the world. Nasser sir in fact had come once to FTII when I was a student there as a guest faculty and I always wished I would once work with him. The fact that I’m working with him I’m such a short duration of my career is extremely rewarding. The shoot of the film was absolutely a learning experience for me to be around such talented individuals“.
