To which, Sheru asks him who is his favorite actor. Sana mentions Sunny Shroff’s name. Sheru then replies that her designer is a woman named Swati Yogi and she will get Sana’s dress designed by her. When Sana asks Sheru if he will introduce her to Sunny Shroff, Sheru pokes at Disha Patani. He replied, “No, no. 22nd who bud. 22nd Who left oh Kounsi the direction He is Aega, oh Patani!”
