Goodbye, which is directed by Vikas Bahl, marked Rashmika Mandanna's Bollywood debut.

Goodbye, the family drama that features Amitabh Bachchan and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles, hit the screens on October 7, Friday. The much-awaited film, which revolves around the lives of a widowed father and his children, is helmed by popular filmmaker Vikas Bahl. Amitabh Bachchan appeared as the central character in the film, while Rashmika Mandanna made her Bollywood debut, playing his daughter. Interestingly, Goodbye is now also making headlines owing to its connection with actress Kriti Sanon.

Kriti Sanon’s part in Goodbye

The opening slate of Vikas Bahl’s film garnered attention with the mention of Kriti Sanon, under the ‘Special Thanks’ category. The audiences have been curious to know why the makers thanked Kriti, who is in no way a part of the Amitabh Bachchan-Rashmika Mandanna starrer, in the title cards. Interestingly, the reason behind this move is revealed by director Vikas Bahl himself, in his recent chat with Bollywood Hungama. According to the filmmaker, the title of the film – Goodbye, came from the Bhediya actress.

Interestingly, Kriti Sanon, who was aware that Vikas Bahl is making this film, called him one day and enquired about the project. During her chat with the director, the actress suggested that the title ‘Goodbye’ will be apt for the project, as most of his directorial ventures have English titles. Vikas Bahl, who realised the title is perfect for his project, discussed the same with leading man Amitabh Bachchan. The legendary superstar also approved of the title, for their project. Thus, the title ‘Goodbye’ was locked for the family drama, in precisely five minutes.
