Alizeh Agnihotri on Salman Khan's advice

In an interview with OTTplay, Alizeh said Salman advised her by making a joke that 'don't overact as subtlety is the best thing'.

"Nobody in my family ever interfered with my career and with what I wanted to do. It was a very organic journey. At big moments, like when I started this film and before that, the advice that I always got was 'just be true to yourself and be real'. The one thing he (Salman Khan) did tell, in terms of acting advice, is he made a joke - 'Don't overact and subtlety is the best thing that you can do'. Obviously, at the time, I knew it was good advice," said Alizeh.

The star kid further mentioned, "But then, even sir's (director Soumendra Padhi) process was very similar. He wanted a very true, realistic side. So then that really helped me a lot. But his blessings were always there, from everyone in my family. No one ever was like 'aise hi karna hai, aise nahi karna hai'. It is a very supportive and very open-minded family."
