I have always been a big fan of Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. It’s a really sweet film made by a great team and I am playing a very beautiful character in it.
People are praising the character of Anil Kapoor sir in the film, and the chemistry between Aishwarya Rai and me is also being appreciated.”

So I am very happy the way it’s going and the way my film journey is shaping up. It’s a humble beginning of this year and I just wish this year also brings same amount of happiness and work satisfaction for me like last year.”
