We hope our film can help create a world where love is love – nothing more, nothing less. “
Adding to that, the protagonist Rajkummar Rao says “I am grateful that the audience had such a good response to our film. “Now that Pride Month is here, celebrating it on a platform like KASHISH with a movie so close to me is really moving.”
