Chhatwal, “The mahurat of our next film was officially done today with traditional puja. It has begun on a good note and we will put in our best efforts. I respect Tigmanshu Dhulia as a filmmaker and I am very excited to be producing Milan Talkies. It is a unique love story and I hope the audience will like it. I believe in hard work and with Tigmanshu as the captain of this ship, I am sure the best efforts will be put in to make good cinema.”

Fazal said, “It is first day of shoot and I am really excited to be joining Milan Talkies in my hometown. It is a big step for me in my career that I am working with Tigmanshu sir and the entire team. I am very excited, a lot of new things will be happening for the first time for all of us. I am working with Shraddha in her first Bollywood film. It feels very weird to be shooting in Lucknow. I’ve lived here, known these gullies, mohallas all my life, never thought I will be shooting here, feels good. This is a unique story and a story which is very close to Tigmanshu sir’s heart. I am really blessed that I am part of it.”

This is a new industry for me because I come from the South and I don’t know the way things work here but I think it is going to be great. I am very happy and proud to be working with some amazing names. I couldn’t have had a better start to my Bollywood career.”
