When asked about both films releasing on the same date, Chaitanya said, ”I’m sure MARGARITA WITH A STRAW will be a good film and it has done so well. In fact, the director of the film (Shonali Bose) was very sweet and kind. We have made a pact that we will both go watch each other’s films with a whole bunch of friends and will promote each other’s films on social media. There’s no competition that way. And I’m sure people can watch two films in a week.”
Producer-actor Vivek Gomber of COURT adds, ”Shonali got us in touch with the Indian ambassador in Europe to help us get another screening there. Even we have wished her good luck.”
Both films have got international acclaim and we hope both films deserve a good audience when they release on 17th April.
