I went in blind, with no idea what to expect and no formal training. It`s been a rollercoaster ride of challenges and milestones with so much I`ve learned since and so many incredible people I met along the way. I`d like to thank everyone who took a chance on me at the beginning. These 3 movies set me up on a trajectory I would never have expected," the actress wrote in her Facebook post.

"Can`t agree more lala paaji #LaraDuttaBhupathi... We were such kaccha papads (novices)! Thank you for your beautiful words... you are as gracious and kind as the first day we met," she wrote in a special post to Lara, her co-star in 'Andaaz' who also appeared in her video.
