Salman Khan’s rumoured girlfriend Iulia Vantur also came to watch the film. She was in a pink dress and a denim jacket. Actor Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu Chopra and cousin Mannara Chopra, actor Aayush Sharma and singer Kanika Kapoor were also spotted at the screening of the film.

Ayushmann Khurrana also watched the film and wrote about it on Twitter. He wrote, “KhaandaniShafakhana has its heart at the right place. A very relevant film on sex education. #BaatTohKaro @sonakshisinha gives her career best. @varunsharma90 is super funny and @Its_Badshah is such a revelation. Fab job paaji. And such a sweet debut by @Priyanshjora.”

 

The film got an average response from the critics. The Hindustan Times review of the film read, “Sonakshi Sinha and Badshah’s film has its heart in the place but suffers for playing sexual problems for jokes and unnecessary melodrama.”
