“It’s coming in 300 screens in Pakistan,” director Abhishek Sharma quipped. It was clarified later that he was joking.


On a serious note, John said: “To answer that question, this is not an anti-Pakistan film, it is a very pro-India film. So, we are very clear this is a film about India and we are going to celebrate this.”

“If we start thinking about other markets, we would be compromising on our film. We wanted to tell the story as it is.”

Written by Saiwyn Quadras and Sanyukta Shaikh Chawla, the film also features Diana Penty, Boman Irani and Yogendra Tikku.It will release on May 25.
