For Deepika, the push by the director helps an actor push the envelope and get better in the craft.

“He (Bhansali) is never happy with what he sees. He is very clear about what he wants from his actors and team. So, he pushes you and helps you discover something within yourself that you didn’t know existed,” the actress said.
