As one of the most classic love stories is being retold on celluloid, Imtiaz Ali's close friend, Anurag Kashyap hosted the first preview of the film. The creative minds of the industry made their presence felt at this 'directors special preview' and the response from these filmmakers has been overwhelming and stupendously encouraging for our debutants, Avinash Tiwary and Tripti Dimri and director, Sajid Ali.
Impressed by the film, Rajkumar Hirani said, “Both the newcomers were fantastic and it didn’t feel like it is their debut performances. Romance runs in Imtiaz Ali’s family, and we can feel that in Sajid’s way of directing a love saga like this one. I wish them all the best”

Kashyap too was all praises for the film. He tweeted, "LAILA MAJNU is such a heartfelt retelling of the love story, so deeply rooted in its mile. Avinash Tiwary’s Majnu is so good, “another addition to a list of good actors. Great music. Well done Sajid Ali. Yeh Romance kya genetic hai Ali khandan mein?#imtiazali"
