While The Lunchbox was one of the strong contenders, it was Gujarati film The Good Road that was eventually chosen as India's official entry.
The actress said she is very happy with the positive response to her debut film.
"Lunch Box has gotten only better with each passing day. The box office report doesn't matter as it's my first film and I am more than happy with the response the film has garnered."
Directed by Ritesh Batra, The Lunchbox features Irrfan Khan and Nimrat Kaur in lead roles.
