In that way you can say that he is a very integral part of the film,” she told in an interview with Bollywood Hungama. Sharing her excitement about the movie, the Udta Punjab actress further said that ending the year with a SRK film is like “cherry on the cake”.
She said, “Ending the year with a Shah Rukh Khan film is like a cherry on the cake. Honestly speaking I am very excited for this film for two reasons. One of the biggest reasons is that I am working with Shah Rukh Khan for the first time and just working with him, being in one frame of the film..I never thought that dream would even come true and the second reason is that I feel it’s a very sweet, simple and unique story,” she said.
