"Farhan sent such a nice and long email to the entire team. He wished all of us. He has been with us through the whole process. It was really sweet and warm," Ali said here at a theatre, where the team came visiting Wednesday to see the audience's reaction.

Other actors in the film - Richa Chadda, Pulkit Samrat and Varun Sharma - were also present at the theatre.
