When asked Abhay what could be the connecting point between his film and the audience, he said, “It is very difficult for me to answer that. As a filmmaker, we always try to please the audience through story of the film and performances in it so I can’t figure out what that particular thing which have connected with audience. Filmmaking is a team effort and hopefully they must have liked everybody work who are involved in the film.”
Talking about his experience working with Manu Rish Chadha, he said, “We have worked together in ‘Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye’ and ‘Ek Chalis Ki Last Local’ and ‘The Odds’ so yes, I have good working relationship with Manu. I think he is really talented actor and writer as well.”

He has performed really well in the film. Manu (Rishi Chadha) bhai has written amazing story of the film which has element of humour and horror and we have tried to give certain message through the film. The film has super-natural concept but we have try to keep it as real as possible which I feel will connect with the audience.”

It’s in commercial and comedy zone so I am excited and I have crossed my fingers.
