The film has set a benchmark for the highest opening ever for a non-cast film. The complete support and involvement from Aamir at every stage of the process, has helped the marketing and distribution team at UTV to rewrite the definition of what constitutes commercially viable cinema. We look forward to making PEEPLI [LIVE] the 'biggest small film' in the history of Indian cinema!'
