We knew we had made a special film but for it to get so much love and acclaim from audiences across the globe is an extremely proud and humbling moment for all of us. I congratulate my producer Maneesh Sharma and my director Siddharth P Malhotra for creating a gem of a film whose universal message of love has been melting the hearts of audiences in China now."
