And among the many admirers of this film, is the young and talented Rajkummar Rao.

He shared his admiration for the masterpiece, made by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, with the debutant actors Aadil Khan and Sadia by personally messaging them and praising the promising work they did in the movie. He appreciated the two newcomers and their talents. Being one of the leading actors of today’s generation, this praise coming from Rajkummar Rao was surely a note of encouragement for Aadil and Sadia.
