She wrote, "Saw #bombaytalkies yesterday @kjohar25, dibaker zoya and anurag kashyap are truly the most remarkable film-makers of our time!! The stories were personal and so very indian. I'm so proud of being a part of this film industry. #bombaytalkies (sic).

RaniBombay Talkies co-director Anurag Kashyap's wife and actress Kalki Koechlin wrote, "saw #bombaytalkies last night. is brilliance in proportion to brevity? in that case everyone in bollywood should start making 25min films."

Author Shobhaa De too, was all praise for the film. "Bombay Talkies! If only more of our movies would speak the same language!," she wrote.

#BombayTalkies is lovely, lyrical, aching. It made me smile and cry. And it made me understand why I love Hindi movies so much. Do watch.
