"Yes, we were offered a lot of films together. In fact, whenever we would get clicked together at award functions, our fans would put those pictures together and make posters. Shahid and I would also talk about wanting to work with each other. I’m sure there is a reason why it didn’t happen for so many years, and why it’s finally happening now. I’m happy that he agreed to be a part of such an important film in such a generous way. And who better than Sanjay Leela Bhansali to bring us together?", she said.
