After learning about the tragedy that struck the teenager, Kriti Sanon did a video call with her from Mehboob Studio, which was a surprise for Muskan. The call made a world of a difference and lifted the spirits of the teenager instantly.
In a video of the call shared by the user, the girl can be heard saying “I like you” to Kriti, and the actress replies: “I love you”.
The actress also advised the girl to take good care of herself and focus on her studies after she recovers. Kriti also encouraged the girl by saying she can achieve a lot in her life. Calling Muskan a “very brave girl”, Kriti said: “Promise me that you will take very good care of yourself”.

In the video, Varun says: “Hi Muskan. How are you? Kriti told me about you and I decided to get in touch with you. You are doing a great job. Keep resting and keep getting better. I am sure you will be back in good health very soon. I want you to go back and study, chase that passion of yours because I have heard that you love to study. Please go back, study hard, work hard and make your parents proud. You will get better soon. When you recover and get healthy, please try to come and meet me face to face. Loads of love for you!” Varun signed off with a flying kiss.
