It's about telling the story of a Kabir Singh and there are enough Kabir Singhs in the world, especially in our country. So, I am okay with that.”

Though she mentions about never signing a film like Kabir Singh, it won’t be a problem for her to just watch it. She said, “I can make choice not to be a Kabir Singh. As a person that choice would be mine but will I go to the theatre and watch Kabir Singh? Of course I will. So, I think I have kind of matured.”
