Imtiaz Ali's Inspiration Behind Geet Kaur Dhillion In ‘Jab We Met’

“Bahot saal beet gaye par mujhe aisa lagta hain ki aisi ladkiyon se main Dilli ki bason mein mil chuka hun. Dilli mein, khaas kar East Delhi ki ladkiya aisi hoti hain. East Delhi samajh rahe hain na? Jamna paar (It’s been many years but I have met such girls in buses in Delhi, particularly those from East Delhi),” Imtiaz Ali said in a recent media interaction with The Lallantop. He went on to describe how the character was relatable. He said, “Jo bohot zyada bolti hain aur fir yeh bhi bolti hain ki ‘main bohot zyada bol rahi hoon par iska matlab yeh nahi hain ki tum line maarna shuru kar do’. Woh bohot baatein karti hain aur unhe zehen mein ek ke baad ek ideas aa rahe hain ki jaldi jaldi bolna hai aur sab kuch share karna hain (These are girls who speak a lot but then also tell you that speaking so much does not mean you can flirt with them. They have a lot of ideas and they have this tendency to share a lot).” (Imtiaz Ali Birthday Special: Veera, Geet, Tara, Heer: Ace Filmmaker's Raw Female Characters Who Won Our Hearts)
