Shalini Pandey made her Bollywood debut with Jayeshbhai Jordaar opposite Ranveer Singh. Produced by Yash Raj Films, the film received a rather underwhelming response at the box office. Although it left Shalini 'heartbroken', the actress has continued her journey in the Hindi entertainment industry. She is presently awaiting the release of Maharaj, wherein she shared screen space with Aamir Khan's son, Junaid Khan. Speaking with Mid-Day, Pandey revealed why she asked Khan to 'slow down a bit' during the filming.

Shalini Pandey on working with Junaid Khan

In an interview with the tabloid, Shalini Pandey shared her experience of working with Junaid Khan in Siddharth P Malhotra's film, Maharaj. The actress called Khan a sweet and supporting co-star. "He is a very hard-working human being so much so that sometimes he works a little too much so I had to tell him that he had to slow down a bit," she said.

Shalini added that team Maharaj was one of the best teams she has worked with. The actress called herself a curious person who wants to know how things work. She recalled working with the film's DoP whose lighting sense amused her. However, she eventually learned the science behind it.

Further, when Shalini was asked if she fears being sidelined since the focus would be on Junaid as it is his acting debut, the actress stated she doesn't think she would face that issue. "When you see the film, you will know that everyone is important," added Pandey.
