Speaking about the filmmaker-actor, Pranav said, "Farhan was the first one to become a member of this society. He has always been very supportive. In fact, when we approached him to inaugurate the festival, he immediately agreed. The film had received tremendous praise from critics for portraying contemporary Indian youth as cosmopolitan and urban. Apart from the screening, he will have an interactive session with the audience and speak about the making of the film."
