As expected, KJo asked her how the auditions of these particular actors went and Bhumi revealed that while Rajkummar was just okay, she felt that Baaghi 2 actress Disha was slightly under trained. Bhumi further went on to reveal details about Parineeti's auditions and recalled that she was fabulous in her first attempt, when she auditioned for Ranveer starrer Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl. 

Well, Bhumi has indeed seen all these stars through their struggles before joining them in the films as an actor herself.
