The reason why we are thanking the Karnataka people is that it is through their word of mouth that the film has captured such an audience. In Mumbai, we are getting such great reviews. It hits us when we go on Twitter and see people talking about it. When people around us talk about it, it makes us proud. Other than that, everything internally for us has changed. We are just happy.”
