I would be the first one to enter the set, it would still be dark! For the wedding sequence, though it is a short one, it took a really long time for me to get ready!

She said, “It was like someone putting ‘alta’ on my hands, someone is putting ‘alta’ on my feet, someone stitching my costume, someone fixing my hair, someone fixing my makeup, someone is putting jewellery on me. There were countless people trying to put layers and layers of clothes and jewellery on me. That took a while!”

Manushi further added, "What I loved about the costumes of Prithviraj is that they kept it very authentic. But they were heavy, the jewellery was very heavy. There was a duppata for my Swayamvar which went on my head. It was really heavy and I had a proper head neck and upper back issue. I couldn’t keep my head straight. So, every time we would stop shooting for a scene 2 people would come and lift the duppata so that the weight is not all on my head."
