She revealed that after watching the movie, her husband was shocked. She further stated that he is a parent now, therefore the story apparently affected him. Talking about the same, she said:
"He was very shocked after seeing the film. He was very deeply moved and I don't think I have seen him so moved by any film. The last time I saw him like that was when Yash uncle passed away. He's a parent today and so, obviously, he was hit by the story."

In the same event, she further mentioned how her husband, Aditya Chopra hugged her in the most adorable manner. Elaborating on the same, Rani said:
"He was very sweet. He didn't give me a front hug but a side hug as if I were his child and he told me, 'Well done!' I told him a thank you. He hugged me as if he was hugging one of so many of his kids at YRF, who he's grooming. It was quite a moment."
The No One killed Jessica actress, further mentioned in a pre-release event that the filmmaker, Aditya Chopra has never praised her in front of her. However, this time, he could not stop himself from praising her. Opening about the same, she said:
"Adi praises me behind my back. If he praises me in front of me, he thinks that meri ghar ki Lakshmi mere sar pe dance karne lagegi. He tries to avoid that situation. He tries not to say too much. But I think this time, he couldn't stop himself. I didn't imagine that he would be so moved."
