The legendary 80-year-old Padma Bhushan awardee singer-actor made a striking debut in the film and team Videocon showed their support by sponsoring the premiere night.
Speaking on the occasion Mr. Anirudh Dhoot, Director – Videocon said, “The Dhoot family has high regards for the Mangeshkar-Bhosle family since my grandfather’s time, so when we were approached to be a part of this beautiful evening, we instantly agreed. We are honored to be associated with this film by sponsoring this premiere night! At Videocon, we have always appreciated and support good cinema.
