On Koffee With Karan 8, Ranveer Singh opened up about his first meet with Deepika before the shoot of the film. The actor recalled, "There was a famous or infamous reading for Ram Leela at Mr Bhansali's house in Versova. I was supposed to meet him before Deepika's arrival. So I was sitting on the table and the door was on my left. He has these heavy doors and he lives by the seaside. So, these heavy doors open and the gush of wind comes from the sea. There, Deepika enters wearing this white chikankari, hair blowing due to the sea wind just like some sadgi ki moorat. I was like Oh My God." Later, Deepika asked Ranveer to clean a piece of crab stuck between her teeth. The actor said that he felt like he had put his pinky finger on a socket and experienced a jolt.
