Thanking the film's writer and director Alankrita Srivastava, co-star Konkona Sensharma and producer Ekta Kapoor, the 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' debutant added, "Thank you Alankrita for making me your kitty. Dolly Di Konkona and Ekta Kapoor, Ruchikaa Kapoor for making this film happen."
"Busan has been all things special," she concluded.
The film was screened at the festival which commenced on Thursday, October 3 and will culminate on October 12.
The upcoming film, which also stars Vikrant Massey and Amol Parashar in pivotal roles, follows the story of two cousins (Bhumi and Konkona).
"It's a phenomenal story of sisterhood and about girls. I get to play this 22-year-old girl who is full of dreams and aspirations and it's our coming of age - Konkona's in her own way and me in my own way. Both Dolly and Kitty are full of ambitions and for me, it's such an entertaining script and film," Bhumi had said earlier in an interview.
