While everybody seems to be discussing the film's success at the box office, Mehra says numbers aren't important to him, he hopes that the film has managed to win some hearts.
Actor Farhan Akhtar who plays the lead in the film has also been vastly appreciated by the audience. When questioned about some criticism that actor Akhtar's acting, Mehra said, "the film is too close to him for having an opinion."
Big names like Prakash Raj and Pavan Malhotra have played significant characters in the film. And Mehra admits being a huge fan of both these actors. Mehra says, "Pavan took the character he played to another level and Prakash Raj is a top notch actor, and he didn't charge a single penny of the film."
