According to a foreign news website, Kapoor made the statement when the actress was being questioned on how happy she was with the response she was getting.
The cast of Udta Punjab which includes Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Kareena Kapoor have received positive reactions for their work in the film.
Bhatt, on the other hand, said that the the opinions of the audience matters the most to her. “It’s been such a difficult journey. I am grateful that I got an opportunity to play this character…I would be happy if I get an award but I just want the audiences approval,” she said.
However, the film entangled in controversy with Indian censor board and later found reprieve from the court against the censor board decision. The flick also got leaked online before the release date.
Shahid commented, “It is hurtful, painful, there is a lot of work which we had done. Someone told me it was playing on cable too…Our films have become vulnerable, especially a week before release. We have become soft target.”
