Says Pammi, "I never planned this double debut; it just happened. And now I am told that in the history of cinema, Hollywood or Bollywood, this has never happened before. While Mummy Punjabi is a subject close to my heart, Na Jaane Kabse is very special to me. I met Garry & Amrita during the auditions and they with their parents have now become my extended family.
