Nobody complains about it then that it looks like a play. in this case, you do because it is based on a play and everyone knows that. I think that I one criticism which is uncalled for.”
When asked why they choose to leave the ‘Badumbaa’ out of the storyline, the film’s director Umesh Shukla said, `When we designed the song, we did only for the promotional reasons. If we would have added the song before Chintu-ji’s journey in the past its impact would have reduced. He can be seen dancing in the song and it would have changed the character’s impact and emotional journey.”
Veteran Amitabh Bachchan was asked how the family reacted to the film, he said, “Everyone watched the film and kids loved it but Madam’s reaction to my work is always serious. Usually, she (Jaya) doesn’t say much but this time she said something different. She said the film’s timing is amazing. When there are big films like Avenger’s releasing this small film will definitely set place in everyone’s heart. And she was right, it did.”
