The scene in question is the one where SK is talking about how one can crack the oldest competitive exam in India - UPSC. But do you know that scene was not even in the script? Thapliyal tells LatestLY, "It wasn't part of the script. It was included much later. In fact, it was one of the three scenes that I was given during auditions. I had memorised the lines at that point itself."

Thapliyal explains that when they started discussing where is SK coming from, what's his ethnicity. It was three-four pages long and he delivered it in one take. "We arrived at a conclusion that SK would be from Bihar whose diction is getting better after living in Delhi but he still carries the accent. He has his own insecurities. His own experiences that he shares with his students," Thapliyal says.

What we loved about this scene were SK's mannerisms. The way he stood, the way he spoke to his students, the conversations, the wisecracks and the famous 'First deserve, then desire.'
