Getting to the shocking part, the complaint. Rukmini said, “So Dev, I have a complaint and a question. The complaint being that, ever since I have become a heroine, whenever I have attended set with you, you have made sure on every movie set, you have always scolded me. And I have never seen you scolding your other heroines so much. Now the question is, will this ever stop? Will there ever be a day when I go on a movie set and get to work with you where you are actually nice to me. You are very kind, you are super sweet to me.”
Well, Dev had a very encouraging response to this. He said, “If you know that a coal can become a diamond, so you actually put them in a more hotter temperature and you know ke issi me heera banne ki shamta hai (It has the potential to become a diamond). Toh mujhe lagta hai ke Rukmini me wo shamta hai (I think Rukmini has that potential). She is a brilliant actress. She is a lovely human being. So I think she has all the potential. Thoda push karne me she can create wonders. I believe that 10 years down the line she will be the biggest name in India.”
