Talking about what kind of film would work at the box office, director Raj Mehta told PTI in June, “Every week there are new theories about what kind of films will work or not. Some say it’s the big picture trend, some say it’s not entirely. There’s a lot of uncertainty, I think nobody knows what’s going to work. Does it increase anxiety? Absolutely. Because you can never be confident that you made a good-looking movie. This is my second film, I’m following a successful debut, so there’s that pressure. But you never know what the time will be like. ”
