With Anushka and Athiya's gestures and facial expressions, it seemed that the topic of discussion between the two of them was quite intense. As both of them hailed from the film industry, Harbhajan candidly guessed the topic of discussion between Anushka and Athiya. However, the former Indian spinner also added that Athiya and Anushka might be discussing films since he is unaware of their cricket knowledge. Harbhajan said:

"Yahi main soch raha tha ki baat cricket ki ho rahi hogi ya phir films ki.. kyunki cricket ke baare mein toh main jaanta nahi kitni samajh hogi."
