Kubra said, Anurag Kashyap one the directors of Sacred Games poured a glass of whiskey for her and read her lines with complete emotions.
She added, “He made me do the scene seven times- every time after the scene, he’d come to me and say I am making you do this so many times, sorry haan. Just one more time, ek aur baar, one more and I am going again, don’t hate me, I know you hate me, don’t hate me.”
