She continued: "I think I've shot for about 50 days now for this film, and now that it's over, I am starting to feel one big void. I absolutely loved working with my boys to the extent that they have and will always have a special place in my heart. The whole team are such darlings ya.. everyone who I worked with on set are so professional and yet so kind hearted, and I in fact kept mentioning to them that I would've loveeeed to work with them for 1000 more times and I'd still be so happy (sic)."
She further mentioned about her director Sandeep Reddy Vanga of Kabir Singh and Arjun Reddy fame as she wrote: "So 1st @sandeepreddyvanga is awesome everyone knows that, he is so obsessed with his craft and character creation that - the clarity he comes with for all scenes and also the freedom he gives to artists is just absolutely amazing. My acting or performance depends directly & entirely on the director" is something I think you now know and so tomorrow if people like what they see or me in Animal - all credits goes to whom you know."
She went on to mention her co-star Ranbir Kapoor, who plays the lead in the film: "Rkaaaaayyy, I think initially because he is #ranbirkapoor I was super nervous but my god!!! Our little secret. God has really taken his time to make him perfect ya.. Brilliant actor, Amaaazing human, Everything else, Crazy no? Love it.. but what a beautiful human he is ya.. I only wish the best for him for life and woaaaaahhhhh. wait have to say this. RK in Animal is (bomb emoji)."
