I nonetheless do not know what labored with the viewers, however I am assuming that, It nonetheless is a hypothetical reply from my finish, stands out as the comedy, the characters, or I do not know what actually labored, or what was new in it, as a result of once I hear the phrase ‘contemporary’, I do not know what was contemporary in it?, I actually don’t know, I can not break it down for myself. If I might, I’d try this once more.

I am going to inform you little by little what had occurred, my first response was like Oh God! I will not have the ability to work the entire day now. First, it wasn’t sinking in but it surely sank in when there have been a number of telephone calls after that and I keep in mind calling Maneesh. I informed him that the movie has received a Nationwide Award, not only for the movie but in addition for the very best singer (Monali) and Varun (Grover) for the very best lyrics as nicely. So, he was additionally equally stunned and he mentioned, what are you saying! After which telephone calls began coming and the telephone was ringing continuous.
