She told a leading news portal, “I’m so glad this happened purely on the basis of references and talent. No one answered the phone for a recommendation. I only got the film because someone liked what I was doing.”

The actress also added: “I have to pinch myself every day to believe this is happening. I grew up watching his (Shah Rukh’s) movies. For me, Shah Rukh Khan is the introduction to Hindi movies. So just standing next to him in a frame is surreal. I just hope I don’t screw up.”
