Actors Chetan Hansraj, Shabbir Ahluwalia, Karan Mehra and many others will attend it.
Kapoor herself said, I۪ve never had such an _overwhelming response from my male friends before. They have gone berserk. I also have a few girls telling me that their boyfriends want to watch the film. So I۪m _organising a boys-only screening for them to have a blast. I won۪t be attending it though. Well, it definitely cannot be said that Leone is unable to pull in the crowds; albeit the majority of who are male.
The film managed 24 crores at the box office during its opening weekend which is a reasonable start. Whether it continues in this same fashion remains to be seen.
