Goes without saying, the actress picked up on a number of traits of Maanayata’s personality such as body language, dress sense, the way she speaks et all to be able to play the role as close to reality as possible.

However, during an EXCLUSIVE chat with SpotboyE.com on Saturday evening at her Khar office, Dia revealed an interesting aspect about Maanayata, which she has to constantly hold during her entire portrayal on celluloid.
“Maanayata never smiles with her teeth seen, whereas my trademark smile is a toothy one (smiles). You will see me smiling with my lips closed in the film.”
Talking about how she went about preparing for the role, the actress informed, “I have known Maanayata for a long time and have done many films with Sanju sir. I also saw pictures and videos of the time the film is set in. However, I am essentially following Rajkumar Hirani’s directive. It’s his vision.”
So, did Maanayata ever visit the sets of the film? “(Smiles) Aap log unko badnaam kar rahe hain. She has never interfered in any way.”
Meanwhile, a few days ago, Ranbir was spotted shooting for the biopic at Carter Road. The resemblance between Sanjay and him was extremely uncanny.
