Can you share any memory with Shah Rukh Khan and Irrfan Khan while shooting in Billu.

Mitali: Oh they’re the most down to earth and the sweetest person I know. We used to play a lot of cricket and cards on the sets. I don’t remember the time when they just sat back in there vanities. They always used to be ready for anything. Games, talks, long walks, food! Shahrukh khan once drove me to the set in his car from our hotel and that was probably the bestest day of my life.
