I was like when Gauri likes my movies, I feel very grateful. It is a very rare thing. She doesn't like anything. Even though she is a producer of the movie, the fact that she loved it, I feel so relieved. I was most excited. I said that also when they called me and even Shah Rukh agreed that if Gauri likes something, it's a big win."
