"I am so glad that people are loving the music of the film. It's one of my most favorite Hindi music albums and all of the songs are beautiful. I can't wait to share it with everyone, so I would like to urge the audience to watch ‘Marjaavaan' on November 15," said Tara.

At the event, Tara revealed a secret about herself: She is addicted to gadgets. "Like most millennials and most people these days, I am addicted to gadgets. I can't do anything without my cell phone," she admitted.

What about her Diwali plans? "It's a wonderful festival because the whole family gets together, so like everyone else the plan is to play cards, to have fun, to be with friends and family and just enjoy it," said Tara, who made her debut earlier this year in Student Of The Year 2, co-starring Tiger Shroff and Ananya Panday.
