While making the film we knew it had great potential because the script was good, but I never knew it will open to such great reviews at the world premiere. This only makes us look forward to making more such films internationally. My crew and team is also excited with the opening here in London.”
The entire team was seen celebrating the reviews and response it evoked. The film will release in India and other parts of the world soon.
