In an interview with IndiaToday.in, Bhumi had earlier talked about her journey in Bollywood. She had said, "I am full of gratitude and feel extremely lucky because I am a product of my film choices. And I don't necessarily have like machinery working behind me. Or people who are going that extra mile to make sure that good things happen to me, and I'm super proud of it. I'm very happy that I'm here because of my craft and I can proudly say that I'm a self-made person. It's not my journey alone. Everybody who has worked with me, it is their journey as well. Every family member, friend, a technician who I worked with, it was their conviction because of which I am here. I would not change a single thing about my filmography."
