However, it has received a lot of praise from Bollywood celebrities. Hrithik Roshan called the film ‘beautiful’, while Ranveer Singh said he wants to see a sequel to the film.
Neha Dhupia called the film “magic” and asked people not to boycott the film. Richa Chadha tweeted: “As Chadha, I wholeheartedly endorse #LalSinghChadha. Made us laugh and cry in unison, collective gasps coming from the theater audience at key cameos were excellent work by ALL.”
