In an exclusive interaction with Firstpost, when asked about the success of the film and how this film has towered above all the boycott calls that were happening against the industry, Mukerji stated, “Very honestly, I’m happy that the film is doing well. It has brought the audiences into the cinemas. When a big film comes out, it becomes a culture because everyone is discussing that film over the weekend. I had also forgotten that feeling and how important it is for our culture. So I feel really good about it, I don’t feel good about towering over or above anybody else. My whole funda from the making to the release of the film was to focus on the positives. This messaging is ingrained in the film’s DNA that love is the greatest Astra. I wanted to fill the DNA of the film with light. So that’s my approach towards the marketing and release as well that just focus on the positive, send out positive pulse. My hope and wish is everyone gives the film a chance at least.”
