#Manmarziyaan will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions questioning morality and love itself but, making you believe in love at the same time. A love story as real as it gets. @anuragkashyap72 thank you for this amazing experience @aanandlrai congratulations 👏🏻👏🏻— Sunny Kaushal (@sunnykaushal89) September 7, 2018

The beauty of #Manmarziyaan lies in the complexities of love n its visual depiction . Three superlative performances and one master director give you a fyaari film . And #Amittrivedi aapne toh home run maar diya. @taapsee @juniorbachchan @vickykaushal09 @aanandlrai sir badhaai 👌— Saqib Saleem (@Saqibsaleem) September 8, 2018
परदे पे प्यार का विस्फोट है "मनमर्ज़ियाँ"।— Vineet (@ItsVineetSingh) September 7, 2018
प्यार और FYAAR में अपने अस्तित्व की आतिशबाज़ी करते किरदार कब इतने बड़े हो जाते हैं पता ही नहीं चलता।@anuragkashyap की एक और निडर फ़िल्म, जो बंधनों को तोड़ती है।आश्चर्यचकित करने वाली अदाकारी। @juniorbachchan का कमाल का अभिनय..
Abhishek, who plays a Sikh in Manmarziyaan, says his paternal grandmother, late Teji Bachchan, who belonged to the community, would have been happy to see him portray this role. When Abhishek’s first look was unveiled, his megastar father Amitabh Bachchan had shared the picture on social media and expressed his pride.
Abhishek told IANS: “Yes, dad shared the picture of my turbaned look and he said that he felt proud. My Dadima (grandmother) was Sikh, so there is an emotional attachment to the whole thing. Though the first time when I wore the turban to get my look done for the shooting, I was more focused on my performance. But later when I saw the footage, I felt special.”
Vicky, who plays a DJ from Amritsar in the film, says the role has given him the opportunity to let loose the wilder side of his personality. “I unleashed my wilder side in Manmarziyaan while playing the character, who is impulsive, colourful, does things without thinking too much... He is free. I rarely got a chance to colour my hair blue and wear such colourful clothes, put a lot of tattoo on my body- in real life. But somewhere that side is hidden in me,” Vicky told IANS.
Giving an insight of her character, Taapsee said: “One of the admirable quality of my character Rumi is that she is very relatable. She is outspoken, little confused, think from the heart and that surely puts her into trouble. I think her outspoken nature is something that I so can relate to.”
