However, going one step ahead, director Rohan Sippy said, ''Actually, in this movie, we have paid tribute to most of our favourite stars. Just like Ayushmann said that he has mimicked SRK in some scenes, there are also references to Salman Khan and Aamir Khan. However, these are very subtle references and it is like a tribute to such stars from the actors of a younger generation.''
NAUTANKI SAALA! stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunaal Roy Kapur in lead roles and the film is slated to release on April 12, 2013.
