Gauhar Khan said, "I feel fortunate to be a part of this industry where an actor like Mr Bachchan works. I am speechless and only want to say that please go and watch Pink. I have no words to express [my feelings]. Taapsee [Pannu] and the other girls are outstanding and no words for Mr Bachchan. Just watch him."

Dia Mirza said, "I think every Indian should watch the movie. It is very relevant and brings out the most crucial issue of our society. It's an outstanding movie."

After receiving much appreciation for her performance, an overwhelmed Pannu said, "I still can't believe that all are appreciating the film so much and they really mean it. I think I am going to have good sleep today."

Other celebrities like Yami Gautam, Neha Dhupia, Sunidhi Chauhan and Shalmali Kholgade took to social networking sites to applaud the film.

Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and debutant Andrea Taring are playing the role of three young women in Delhi who face assault charges after being molested by a group of men. Piku (2015) actor Amitabh Bachchan portrays the lawyer for the three women.

The court drama-thriller directed by Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury is written by Ritesh Shah and produced by Rashmi Sharma and Shoojit Sircar. The film also stars Piyush Mishra, Angad Bedi and Dhritiman Chatterjee. It is scheduled to be released on Friday.
