Vindu Dara Singh further added, "In fact, the actors who worked in the film told me that they would ask the director and writer to change the dialogues as they felt it was wrong. But the makers didn’t do so as they believed they were making something exceptional. I am sure, they will not repeat a mistake like this again."
