The film received mixed reviews from the critics. It also stars Anubhav Singh Bassi, Dimple Kapadia, Boney Kapoor as Ramesh Arora and Hasleen Kaur. The dance numbers like Show Me The Thumka and Pyaar Hota Kayi Baar Hai caught attention for their choreography and lyrics.
Talking about her role in Tu Jhoothi Main Makkar, Shraddha said in a PTI interview, “It’s such a different character from what I’ve played in Aashiqui 2 and other films after that. She is a girl who is more in charge, she is on the front foot and is confident. For me, it was refreshing to play a character who says what she feels. She is a girl-next-door with some ‘tadka (spice)’. It was a first for me.”
“My character was something I was excited to play because she is not something who I’m. It was a challenge for me as an actor,” she added.
