Rani Mukherjee told Xinhua News Agency recently that the Chinese audience’s reaction to the movie is similar to that of Indian fans, which means that everyone can capture their own stories and emotions in the movie.

I hope to see artists from China and India cooperate to create stories that people from both countries like.”
