Speaking about why fans connected to the story, Ishita adds, ”Nothing of that was ever shown before. We gave a whole new perspective to a feeling which was commonly felt amongst most of us. But had never been penned down. And perhaps with a new fresh cast, it made every guy in the audience see himself in those three characters at some point in the film. It was relatable.”
In 2015, a sequel to ‘Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2’ was released. The actress was also seen in the second part, in which she was paired with Omkar Kapoor. Post that, she featured in ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’, which minted more than Rs 100 crore at the box office.
