To this, Ali replied. ‘I think it’s almost the same. Both the stars are very chilled out. You know Salman, I’ve had my maximum fun on set with Salman sir, because he has a wicked sense of humour, he enjoys life, he is a people’s person. And the same is Diljit. So their core system, their genes structure is the same.’
Ali Abbas Zafar also went on to reveal that directing Diljit Dosanjh is bit difficult and Salman Khan is easier. ‘But Diljit is easier in a lot of other ways’, said the director.
