Speaking about the same, Priyamani said, “When we were shooting for Chennai Express, I remember it was the last day and he (SRK) was really being sweet enough and said why don’t we have dinner, then I said chalo thik hai and I went to his vanity and we were having our dinner and it was the most amazing food that I ever had. His vanity van was so huge like a two area,” adding that he was showing her around the van which amazed her.

Speaking about the criticism she received for playing Suchi in The Family Man 2, Priyamani shared, “I believe that I have done something right. You can diss me all you want, you can hate me. But that’s when I know that my character is good and the way it has shaped up right from season one, even now I received a message saying, ‘Aapko Shrikant ke sath aisa nahi karna chahiye tha.’ Almost on a daily basis I keep getting such messages. Whatever post I put on my Instagram, half the people comment saying, ‘Oh Arvind ke liye aapne aisa kiya’,  or ‘Aapne Shrikant ko dhoka kyun diya?’ I don’t tend to respond to all that. I just laugh it off. And that means I have done something right with my portrayal. Which is why they “hate” me. So I take it as a positive response to my performance. So that’s good in a way.”
