Actress Manjari Phadnis, who is sharing screen space with acclaimed actors like Ashutosh Rana, Supriya Pathak and Prem Chopra in her upcoming Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hain, says she was a little scared to work with so many veterans.

"Working with veterans is unnerving for new actors because you want to match up to their performance," said Phadnis at the music launch of the film on Wednesday.

"It has been a great opportunity to learn from veteran actors like them. I've seen Ashutosh sir in films like Sangharsh, Dushman, etc. But when I actually met him, he was so warm and encouraged me a lot on the set," she said.

"Many times Ashutosh sir gave me tips on acting. I've worked with Supriya ma'am in Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. She is a wonderful lady. I am extremely lucky to work with such great actors," the Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na actress said.

The film not only presents different slices of life but also exhibits the colourful journey of the characters. The movie has been shot in various places in India and the US and captures the grandeur of the countries.

Speaking about her role, the 32-year-old actress said: "My role in Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai starts from when she is 18 years till she turns much older. Therefore, the role has so many graphs regarding the experiences she goes through. My character is a positive character and evolves through the story. It was a challenging, but a very learning experience for me."

Directed by Keshhav Panneriy and produced by Purnima Mead, Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai is a family entertainer with a blend of action, romance and comedy.

The star cast includes Arbaaz Khan, Rana, Himansh Kohli, Phadnis, Pathak, Rati Agnihotri and Chopra.

It is slated to release on 3 March.
