Television turned Punjabi film actress Sargun Mehta after bagging her first Filmfare Award for Punjabi film ‘Lahoriye’ said, "It is a beautiful movie based on the backdrop of Indo-Pak partition. Whenever we hear of a war film, we think of fight scenes, religious issues but interestingly this film is all about love. The people who migrated from India to Lahore during partition were called Firozpuriye and those who migrated from Lahore to India were called Lahoriye. It’s a beautiful love story of two lovers who get separated during partition and how they fought for their love."

She added, "I have worked with Amrinder Gill earlier in ‘Angrej’, and it was wonderful to work with him again."

On working in Bollywood, she said, "Well, I will work in Bollywood only if something really good comes my way. There are always chances to work in Bollywood but what matters to me is a good script. As of now, I am happy doing Punjabi films. "Punjabi films have gained acceptance nation-wide in past two years. With Diljit Dosanjh becoming a star in Bollywood, there are many opportunities for Punjabi artists."
