Do you know the drum with Nagda? I was playing it on the set – and I had an American cast and crew so I’m playing it because I like that song a lot, and there was literally someone like, ‘Oh this is so beautiful, Nay, what it’s you?’ And ‘as it was,’ yes it is, it is. ”
Naomi Scott said, “I thought to myself, you could be compared to people worse than Deepika, so I think she’s very pretty.”
Aladdin was directed by Guy Ritchie, the film was a huge success. Little is known that Bollywood actress Tara Sutaria was also considered for the role of Princess Jasmine.
