R. Balki says, "The whole team is thrilled that our film has been chosen in the 'Galas' section for a world premiere at the prestigious Toronto Film Festival. It's an honuor when your film is being showcased alongside films by Billy Bob Thornton, Roger Michell, Robert Redford, Mike Newell, Ben Affleck and Mira Nair. Gauri and I are personally very excited. And hope the world cheers the comeback of Sridevi - India's only true pan Indian female superstar."
