After Vicky Donor, there were a lot of people who asked me to do Vicky Donor 2, but we built Madras Cafe. Then they asked me to do Madras Cafe 2. So generally there is a herd mentality where “Someone is following a trend. But I’m not doing that. I’m not working that way.” Attack is directed by Lakshya Raj Anand.
