She adds, "My husband and I watched the trailer of their upcoming movie together and I felt so proud to see her on the big screen.

I feel she has done a commendable job for a new comer and has caught onto the Bhopali accent very well for her role."
After this heartfelt message from Raveena, Athiya requested to share the stage with the diva on her father's song 'Sheher Ki Ladki' that Raveena and Suniel recreated recently.
