Lakshmi says," wherever I go I can see positivity in everyone's eyes. People say that acid attack survivors will at least get justice now since people are coming out and talking about the issue. When I went for the first time on the sets I realized that society will speak about it. When they released the poster I remember I was sleeping. I got so many messages from people telling me about it. I woke up and when I saw Deepika's picture I said wow Laxmi."

She further adds, "In 2016, I met Meghna and she told me she wants to tell this story to the world. I said yes and when I see her today what they have made I just want to say thank you to them. I was very happy that Deepika is playing me in the film."
