John Abraham could not be present for the unveiling ceremony because he is busy shooting in Miami for Karan Johar’s production Dostana. His parents Abraham John and Phiroza Abraham filled in for his absence.
Super Cassettes Industries Ltd. (T-Series) CMD Bhushan Kumar adds, "T-Series has always prided itself in being a company with unique marketing strategies and music that appeal to the masses. Now, we are entering into film production in a big way. Our joint venture Aashayein with Percept Picture Company is another strong move in this direction."
Talking about the film, director Kukunoor says, "The film is a love story, but not the traditional one between a man and a woman. It is story of a man falling in love with his life, the film talks about living life in the present moment and not planning future."
