Speaking to India Today Group, Pushkar Gayathri emphasized that the presence of another big film is going to hurt either one of the movies majorly.

“Actually not. I think our market is big enough to handle two or three films at the same time because there are just that many people who come and watch the cinema. So, if they want to watch it, they will watch it. If not today, then tomorrow. I don't think the presence of another big film is going to hurt either one of the movies majorly. I think it is not right to pit movies against each other. We all love the cinema," Pushkar Gayathri said to India Today.
