Before we began engaged on the movie, I made it clear to Priyanka and Dr. Chopra that it was a one-of-a-kind movie and it needed to be marketed otherwise. We are advertising it like a overseas movie and never like a daily Bollywood movie or perhaps a regional movie. We are very positive about our audience and are advertising the movie accordingly.


What are you doing subsequent?

I plan to make a political thriller. Once ‘Pahuna’ releases, I can take it ahead.
