“I’ve worked with some really great directors, one (Karan Johar) of them is here and now Shakun (Batra) as well who has given me, I think, it is one of my career-best performances.
I feel like the role is made for me. So, I have given it my best. I think I’ve been very very lucky,” said Kareena Kapoor.

He’s a very sweet guy,” added Kareena Kapoor.
