And a sense of just celebrating life, just ordinary things of life.”
She added, “Whether it’s playing cricket in the middle of a shoot or when you are waiting or there’s a pause and you decide to fly a kite… I thought that he can do all this because he’s so established, only to realise much later that no, he is probably established because he does all these things to keep sane.”

It allows you to absorb life with a sense of lightness, with a sense of joy. I think that’s really crucial to being a creative person.”
The actress added that whereas she has seen that in Irrfan, she herself shouldn’t be that one who may be inventive when she is cynical or unhappy. Admitting that she finds herself extra open to the world when she is in a contented area, Tillotama shared, “So if there’s something that I have learnt from Irrfan, I feel that a song is always playing in his head and I would like to keep that and learn that from him.”
