Saiyami Kher's note of gratitude post Ghoomer release
In a touching note about Ghoomer, Saiyami had written about how she was always into sports but as an actor, she was told to unlearn all of it in order to excel in acting. Crediting several people for the praise she has been getting for her performance in the film, she wrote in an Instagram post, “Balki gave me that. This film has my blood, sweat, tears, and heart. Anina is me, I am Anina. The palindrome extends beyond just a play on the name."
She further wrote, “To @anuragkashyap10 who filled my head with logic and brought back my confidence. To Balki, who filled my life up with magic by giving me this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. To AB who taught me kindness. To Shabana Maushi who showed me the importance of family. And to Angad, my first friend in the industry; thank you. To spending a year with one hand tied up. And to realizing that we’re stronger than what we think we think we are. To believing in oneself. To Ghoomer."
