Mum,bai: Actor Shahid Kapoor paid special tribute to his step mother by convincing `Mausam` producers to credit Supriya Pathak as associate director of the film.
Supriya Pathak helped and contributed in every department during the production of ‘Mausam’. This made Shahid Kapoor persuaded his producers to bill her as the associate director for the movie.
According to the film crew as reported by a daily, Pathak has contributed enormously in shaping the film that is being directed by Pankaj Kapur.
Said a source to a daily, "It wouldn`t be an exaggeration to say the Shahid-Sonam Kapoor starrer couldn`t have been made without Supriyaji.
From the lighting to the script and dialogues, to making sure that the actors have their lines ready, to adjusting their clothes, to making sure Pankaj has his medicines and meals on time, she has been the driving-force of the film."
Producer Sheetal Talwar admits, "Yes, we are thinking of something on those lines (to bill Pathak as associate director)."
