I want to thank each and every person who has been a part of my journey and has helped me achieve my goal. I want to thank @ektaravikapoor Ma’am for recognising the talent in me and giving me #PavitraRishta which gave me the identity across the country. @zeestudiosofficial @zeetv Zee has been a constant from #ZeeCineStarKiKhoj to #PavitraRishta and now #Manikarnika. Zee has always played an important role in this journey.”

She added, “I cannot thank enough to @kamaljain_thekj #KamalJain Sir for seeing the potential in me and giving me my dream debut.

#KanganaRanaut @team_kangana_ranaut has been a best co-star and director. Thank you, Kangana for always being there for me and taking this film a notch higher. I would also like to thank everyone from #media who has always showered their love and I hope you all will always support and encourage me.

The person that I am today is all because of my fans. Words are not enough to express my love for them. Thank you all for always being there for me and now that I am stepping into another phase of my life, I hope that they will shower more love. Their love encourages me to do better and I hope that I will always receive the same in the future.” (sic)
