In an interview with PTI, the actress said, "Adi (Aditya Chopra, director) used to say that 'we have taken you because you can stand on your own against anyone'. Yashji (Yash Chopra) had also said the same. For a young person like me to hear that was a huge confidence booster,"
"I got to work with people who were very nice and generous to me. I share a beautiful equation with all of them even now. I am blessed to be working on this film. It changed my life. It is something that is going to be the most special thing I have done," she added.

Talking to PTI, the actress said, "I valued the art I was in, I valued acting a lot, I paid attention and worked towards it. I would read the same script almost every day, finding something new in it to do. They understood the hard work I was putting into the film. And the only reason I was so confident when I did the film is that I was so prepared. Confidence comes because you work so hard," she said.
"It is different for different scenes. Like, what changes are happening emotionally with my character, what are the reasons of my existence, etc." she further added.
