Film is just for sake of showing some better side of Pakistan, and her biggest critiques just loved the movie which is far better enough for her. She said that my kids are not rom-com lovers but the tears in their eyes just left me happy and satisfied. They are half-Pakistani Muslim kids so their opinion matters to me the most. At the end of film I heard them saying, “amma we are so proud of you”.
She said that I have worked really hard on the film, so if no one likes it, this is the moment I am proud of that my kids are satisfied with the film.
