Sonam is said to be playing the role of a homosexual in the film. She has been hailed by her fans who have appreciated her for making such a choice. In a HT report, film exhibitor Akshaye Rathi has called the film a smaller release with only 800-900 screens. Predicting an opening of around Rs 2 crore, Rathi told HT, “While it’s a very non-conventional subject to be put out on the silver screen, as a society, India has become a lot more accepting of homosexuality as a concept which has been normalised now. I really hope the movie doesn’t speak about homosexuality in a serious way as that may bore the audience.”
