"Riteish is very funny. He has an amazing sense of humour. But I was scared to work with him. He is much senior to me so I thought to myself, 'how he would be with me, how am I going to work with him'," Pulkit told.
    
The 'Fukrey' star was pleasantly surprised when Riteish took efforts to break the ice between them and made him feel at ease.
    
"To my surprise, he said 'hello' to me first. He broke the ice, he made me the most comfortable. He used to give ideas that 'let's do something,' started improvising and made workshops so much fun that we opened up by the end of it and that's actually showing on the screen," Pulkit said.
    
Talking about the movie, Pulkit said, "It is a story of two youths who come from two parts of Bangistan. Riteish's character comes from North Bangistan. He is a Muslim. My character Praveen Chaturvedi comes from South Bangistan.”
    
"We both believe in our respective faiths firmly and that is what is used as a weakness against us by the leaders of our respective fundamental groups," the actor said.

When asked if 'Bangistan' team ever worried about the probability of having controversy around the movie, considering the religious sentiments involved, Pulkit said they never doubted the film as their intentions were at the right place.

Directed by debutant Karan Anshuman, 'Bangistan' is a satirical comedy, which follows the lives of two blundering terrorists, played by Pulkit and Riteish, on a mission to change the world. 'Bangistan', also starring Jacqueline Fernandez, is set to release on August 7.
