  • Mrunal Thakur is a big Jab We Met fan.
  • Hence when she first met Shahid Kapoor, she felt intimidated.

Mrunal Thakur worked with Shahid Kapoor in Jersey for the first time. Coming from a television background, Mrunal did not have much experience working in Bollywood movies as she had just completed working with Hrithik Roshan in Super 30 and with Farhan Akhtar in Toofan. So when she met Shahid Kapoor for the first time, the actress felt intimidated.

Speaking about the same in a recent interview, Mrunal Thakur said, “The day I was supposed to meet Shahid for a script reading, I got the address wrong and ended up late. When I finally met him, I blurted out, ‘Your smile in real life is exactly like it is on screen!”

The Sita Raman actress is a die-hard 'Jab We Met' fan and hence when she saw Shahid Kapoor sitting across her she was bound to feel the impact of his magnetic presence.

There was a bit of awkwardness on her side initially. Explaining the same, the actress said, “During the shoot of Jersey, there were days when I would forget my lines because I was so overwhelmed being on the sets with Shahid Kapoor. He’s a great co-star, but for the first few days, I was also a little awkward. I tend to get intimidated when working with people, who I have admired on screen.”

The actress also recently opened up about relationships and finding work and life balance. Mrunal thinks that everyone is always trying to find a balance between life and career. She said, “I know relationships are tough, and that's why you need to find the right partner who understands the nature of your job.”

She also confirmed that like Mona Singh she is also thinking of freezing eggs. Mrunal has always been open about going through a dull patch emotionally and career-wise and revealed that she does take the help of therapy and her loved ones to go through bad days.
