Even though the film faced reservations from a certain section of society, it has become a box office success. After receiving accolades from cinema lovers who showered immense love on it, the actress took to social media and penned a lengthy note addressed to movie lovers. She expressed her gratitude to them for proving naysayers wrong.


Her post read, "When we were making 'Article 370', so many people told us that this film won't work with the audience, 'it's too technical, too many political jargons etc etc'. But we went ahead with our gut because we knew those naysayers were underestimating our audience. Thank you all for proving them absolutely wrong. Thank you so much for giving so much love to our small little film with a big heart. We are humbled and will remain forever grateful to all of you. Dhanyawaad! Jai Hind!"
