People are messaging that she should be proud of her granddaughter. Aur meri daadi ka pet name Rinku hai, it’s also the name of my character.

Sara Ali Khan also talked about her dad Saif Ali Khan and mom Amrita Singh are reacting to the film and she told Bollywood Hungama, “While they really, really enjoyed the film, the biggest thing is that they are both sending me messages, reviews and tweets of what other people are saying about my performance.
