Gurgaon and Jab Harry Met Sejal , both films are releasing on 4th August, so when asked about her film clashing with giant Shah Rukh, she said, “Shah Rukh sir is up there. When I first came to know that our film is releasing with Shha Rukh sir’s Jab Harry Met Sejal that time I really got scared but I would love to work with him and it’s a dream to work with Shah Rukh sir so I feel whatever our film’s destiny be like but we are very sure of our content. It’s a great film and I can assure you that”.

Ragini’s face is looking scratched in the poster of Gurgaon, so when asked her reason behind that, she said, “The scratch on the face is there for reason so when campaigning of the film will begin then it is going to get revealed. Earlier, we have launched first look of Pankaj Tripathi’s character and first poster of the film is also launched so things will be unfold because it’s a crime thriller and noir in genre.”
Ragini has worked in television for many years so when asked her about working in television and film, she said, “There is lot of difference. In films, there is lot of detailing in every single aspect and that is very interesting. I really enjoyed working in television and now I am also enjoying working in film as well”.
“You can’t challenge reach of television. Today almost every household has television and film is different medium. It’s just difference in medium. I feel artist is artist in every medium. As an artist, I have to perform in theatre, ad, television or film as well”.
