Mumbai: Actress Alia Bhatt says she worked hard before filming 'Gulabo' where she is seen dancing with her "Shaandaar" co-star Shahid Kapoor.

"'Gulabo' was the first song that Shahid and I had to do. I was very nervous about dancing with him. I had to have at least 10 per cent of his energy. He has 100 per cent. I rehearsed a lot," Alia told reporters here at a promotional event of the Vikas Bahl-directed movie.

Shahid said he faced a lot of competition from his co-star as she would be rehearsing while he was hanging out on the sets.

"Today actors are 'shana' (smart). We usually used to hang out everyday after the shoot. I got to know that Alia used to rehearse as she wanted to get better than me ...There was competition."

Shahid and Alia seem to have crackling chemistry in the movie and the actor attributes it to her unassuming nature.

"I don't know what works in our favour. We did not interact much before we got on board for this film. We had met once or twice after we started doing the film and we just got along well. She is unassuming, nice and a wonderful person."

Alia revealed the bikini scene that is generating a lot of headlines was actually shot in cold weather.

"It was minus two and I was doing this scene. I was not comfortable. I was freezing," she said.
