I was prepared for it. I think people began judging the film right from the very beginning, without even watching it. And at one point, I had to convince myself that the reaction I was going to get wasn’t in my control. We began shooting for it right after the first lockdown, when I was dying to be on a set. I loved travelling to Karaikudi (Tamil Nadu) to shoot the film. The memories are still vivid in my mind. I choose to focus on the love we got after the first song was released. Said Malhotra
