In an interview with Firstpost, Kajol spoke about working with Devgn once again. "We have done many films together so it wasn’t something very different working with him now. But it was very comfortable and very convenient because we used to travel to work at the same time and go carpooling. It felt like home," she said. She added it was good to have him as a co-actor because he always gave useful advice and input.
