Legendary composer A.R. Rahman opened up about his views on PM Modi's message, stating that India has a lot of stories to tell. He further added, "The quality of stories and the making has come up really high. It is a good start and I feel that there is much more to do in terms of distribution, sensibilities and being quick with narratives."

Terming the Prime Minister's message as perfect, the veteran musician asserted, "It (Prime Minister Modi's message) is a perfect one because narratives have to come from this part of the world. International films have always been about the West mostly. The past 20 years have been changing."
