Talking about Dimple and her relationship with Vikram Batra, Kiara told Indian Express, “It was very warm because it was only the both of us. I was in Chandigarh shooting for something else and it was all thanks to Vishal Batra, who made us meet. There was no one else in the room and she spoke and I just listened to her. She reminisced about all her memories, their moments. How things were back then, writing letters, trunk calls.

“It wasn’t as easy as it is today to have a long-distance relationship. In those four years, even though it was only a couple of times that they might have even physically met, you are so much in love with each other that you decide this is for eternity and that’s a choice you make. Today to see someone actually decide and choose ``I don’t want to marry anyone else ever in my life, imagine what it speaks for the love they had.” Kiara further added.
