And my dad felt that this generation would love this film and that families would love the film because it’s so true to our Indian families and culture. He took the number of my director and left him a long message saying thank you for doing this for this generation.”
Rakul also had the opportunity to see the audience’s reaction in theatres and was ecstatic with the response.
