Deepika thanked her Indian fans for giving her so much love by saying, “Anything that you put your heart and soul into, you’re sure to see the results. I was emotional with the way India embraced the film. The way I spoke in the film and was very well received. I think it is worth it stepping out of your comfort zone and doing something.”

Deepika also cleared the rumours that she will not be acting in the remake of Mr and Mrs Smith. She said, “if I would be doing a film, I would talk about it.
