When asked what other city of the world would she be willing to settle in, aside from Pakistan, she replied, “Why can’t it be in India? It can be in Bhaarat too, I mean, Dubai as well. But this is the kind of event that brings us face to face with people like Jahnvi, Govinda sir is here, Ranveer. So, we finally get the opportunity to mingle with people who may be distant from our country but very close to our hearts.”

He thanked everyone at the gathering for showing him “tremendous affection” while acknowledging the support of his family.
Humayun was asked why he made London Nahi Jaunga. “Sir I looked you up and came across this film of yours. Why did you not want to go to London? Did you not get a visa or did you not get along with Rakhi?” quipped Bharti.
“I had made a film called Punjab Nahi Jaungi. It became successful and I became greedy. So I decided to make another film called London Nahi Jaunga,” Humayun replied.
Bharti went on to express her wish to visit Pakistan someday to get a taste of Pakistani food. She then asked Humayun to never say “London nahi jaunga” again. Humayun replied, “Men tou India bhi jaunga,” to which the crowd cheered. They even exchanged a friendly hug.
