I will never forget how lovely, welcoming & generous you were to me in Dil Se Thanks to you I started my film journey on such a positive note. You never made me feel I was working with a superstar & nurtured me on the shoot."

Manisha said, "Being impacted by cancer, I know how important your body, mind, and health are. How intertwined they are. How dependable they are. So sometimes when I'm in deep depression...Even now sometimes I go into depression. When I was doing Heeramandi, it consumed me so much. My mood swings were constantly fluctuating.

We have made the show with so much love, and we expect you all to love it."
