The actress says, “The Lunchbox will forever be a film that is close to my heart. It was my first film in a leading role and there were hoardings all over there was a well-known brand that did one of their signature takes on the film and that was extremely special for me. I remember we had organised a special screening of the film in Delhi where it was just me, Irrfan, Ritesh Batra and our close family and friends and it is crazy to look back and see how things have changed.”

For the unversed, the Ritesh Batra directorial revolved around a young housewife to an older man, who fell in love without even meeting each other. The star cast of the film also featured Nawazuddin Siddiqui in a pivotal role. The film received a positive response from the audience as well as the critics.
