Nikhil Sane, producer of the film, admits that he never expected such a huge response.
Nikhil says, "The previous record was held by Duniyadari (2013). However it made R5 crore over the entire week. We expect similar figures in two days once the official statistics come out. Going by Ravi’s record, we knew that we will get good opening but no so big".
Ravi Jadhav, who has won National Awards for his films like Natarang and Balgandharva , says that it was his conscious decision to make a light-hearted love story with not-so-known faces from Marathi industry.
The director says,“It is a youth-centric film and the response is unbelievable. In fact, some of the theatre owners called me and told me that they have pulled out shows of some Hindi films and had to allot extra screens for my film which is a welcome change.”
