My journey has certainly not been easy. I have struggled a lot to find producers for my films. As a newcomer everyone faces this problem, but I am thankful to Yash Raj Films (YRF), who believed in me,” Asthana told
It was the prestigious YRF that gave her a chance to direct her maiden film — 2011 romantic comedy `Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge` and her second film `Bewakoofiyaan` too has been produced by the same production house.
`Mujhse Fraaandship Karoge` opened to a lukewarm response at the box office and even `Bewakoofiyaan`, which hit the screens Friday, managed to earn Rs.4.74 crore in the first weekend.
Asthana teamed up with Sonam Kapoor and Ayushmann Khurrana in `Bewakoofiyaan` and praised the actress to the skies.
She said: “Sonam is very intelligent. She is a kind of a person who reads a lot. I couldn`t think of anyone else for `Bewakoofiyaan`.”
