It’s only when people don’t see a lot of you, they remember you with your last best,” Anurita said. “Unfortunately the parameter of a successful film is only counted by the box office numbers today. “I thought this space of a fun film would be very interesting for me because before this I did Jugni and Gangs of Wasseypur which were both heavy duty emotional drama. 80 per cent of the films we have are only star driven and not all are high on content. 2017-07-22T18:18:28+00:00″>
