''I am glad the promotions are going well. Yami is very pretty. And she has a great sense of humour. Yami is a natural performer. There is no acting happening there,'' he said.
Not long ago, Yami Gautam surprised everyone with these statements, , "The weather conditions brought us close. It was cold in Ladakh and we were always helping each other. Pulkit was caring. I felt a warmth towards him.''
Yami Gautam further added, ''While shooting the romantic scenes, we just wanted to hug each other to feel warm. It was funny!"
However, when Divya Khosla Kumar was asked about Yami and Pulkit's affair by Filmfare, she denied that it is a publicity stunt, ''That's not my filmmaking philosophy. In fact a television channel had approached us with the idea of playing the lead pair's affair all day in their channel because it will give required footage to the movie.''
''When my department suggested that to me, I completely put my foot down. That's because I don't agree with it. It's not a publicity stunt. The media is writing about it because the power of pen is not in our hands. The media is writing what they want to - we have not fed them these stories,'' she said.
