Speaking to the media on Monday, the 37-year-old actress said that it was surreal to witness the response at Gaiety Galaxy. “It felt amazing. We had been doing indoor screening for days but finally, I got a chance to get out. I wanted to go on the day of the film’s release but that could not happen. To experience this kind of love, especially when what the world has been through, the fact that a movie like this can bring people together, that it can bring so much joy and celebration that it almost feels like a festival,” she said.

Talking about her relationship with SRK after working in Om Shanti Om, Chennai Express and Happy New Year, she said, “I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for Shah Rukh and his vision for me. He has given me confidence and even he doesn't know that,” she said.
