In the same interview, Anand also spoke about his last conversation with Sharma. Recalling how she wanted to speak with him a day before her death, he said, "Sharma wanted to have a word with me. But we never got time. There was always something or the other going on the sets. The next day she took the drastic step."
Anand on actors and their vulnerability
Anand also talked about how actors become vulnerable while playing their characters. "The point is actors are quite vulnerable because we tend to find emotions in it. Sharing is very important. She (Sharma) was always happy and smiling. This has become a lesson for all of us, some are running behind followers on social media, and some for lead roles," he added.
