In a separate tweet, the actress mentioned how the Aanand L. Rai directorial film contributed in shaping her career.

“Thanks to @aanandlrai and our writer Himanshu Sharma for this franchise, when they came to me as struggling makers I thought I can make their careers but instead they made my career, one can never tell which film will work and which won’t, all destiny, glad my destiny has you,” the actress wrote.

Written by Himanshu Sharma, the film also features R Madhavan, Jimmy Sheirgill, Swara Bhasker and Deepak Dobriyal in key roles.
