In a conversation with Mid Day, Akshay Kumar said, ‘I feel very good. I know that many critics do not like my films and I understand it but my focus is on the audience. I was told that the film got the biggest opening of my career. Playing the role of transgender is to strengthen the rights of the LGBTQ community. There was a similar feeling behind doing films like Padman (2018), Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (2012), Mission Mangal (2019). I want to bring change. ‘

People from all over the world watched the film by logging onto Disney Plus Hotstar, that too in a few hours of its release, I applaud you all. Who doesn’t like breaking records? Whether it is the box office or the film’s opening night on the OTT platform, this feeling cannot be compared to anything else.
