Through a post on social media, Yami released a statement saying that while it was not always necessary to win awards, a nomination at least acknowledges an artist's performance in a film. She said that the jury at the Awards was comprised of the most eminent personalities, and hence it was her duty to respect their decision. She reiterated that this Filmfare snub actually pushed her to not seek validation from external sources and keep giving her best at what she does.

Ayushmann Khurrana, who co-starred with her in Bala, reacted to Gautam's post saying, "So proud YG.” Vikrant Massey, who is set to feature alongside the actress in the upcoming film Ginny Weds Sunny, also responded to the post.
