Recently, Dabboo Ratnani spoke to Bollywood Hungama and shared his experience working with Vicky Kaushal. When asked to comment upon his experience working with him, Dabboo said, “Because it's a non-commercial project, you cannot force anybody to do it. We don't make money out of it; we don't pay the actors anything. So, it's more for the passion, more for the relationship and more to achieve a great shot, it's more about creative satisfaction that we get through the calendar. So, with Vicky, I had shot Zubaan, his first film publicity and that time he kept saying I'm very awkward in front of the still camera but he was very easy. To me, he did amazing shots even that time but now he keeps saying I am not rigid, I couldn't pull. I was wondering what you would think of me. But he was very chilled out, he was very good in front of the camera and in fact some of those pictures I'll show it to people when I'll release some of them beacuse some of the pictures didn't come out in the posters but I had such an amazing throwback pictures of Vicky so hopefully I'll release them.”

He further recalled the last calendar shoot with Vicky and how he managed to give perfect shots despite the December cold. The photographer said, “Last year we did a calendar shot, where he was in water, he was very torso and he was freezing in the December cold water and it was on the roof top of a hotel so, it was so cold that he was actually shivering in the water but he managed to look really hot and sexy.”

He also discussed about the look that the actor carried for this year and said, “This time he was clean shaven so I said you know let's do a completely to it. Because usually what happen is when we do grungy stuff, stubble heavy beard with leather look. I said this time let's go with a leather with this clean look. It's a different thing for different takes; it's not that we always have to shoot bearded with leather. So, I said let's go with this clean look and do it with this whole leather and vest and we given it a very rugged look. So, I played a lot with the lighting in Vicky's shot and I lighted up in a very contrast high fashion black and white kind of style. I think it worked very well, it's looking very different. We've got 9 pictures and same thing happened with everyone that we couldn't choose the best one. We've been home because of the lockdown, so it gave us enough time to really go through the pictures and choose the best one and put it out there.”
