As the film crossed Rs 210 crore at the global box office, director Karan Johar penned an emotional note of gratitude on social media. The filmmaker penned, “Prior to the release of this film, I felt that at any point of time I would need an IV drip and was near collapse!! The question I asked myself was – is it the long 7 year gap? Or the anxiety built over the last 3 years. Or the fact that we live in an ambiguous box office time. Whatever the real reason is – I was a bonafide mess! But the Friday, 28th of July, I felt nothing but gratitude, validation and sheer joy. This film is truly a product of team energy and love. I want to first express my deepest gratitude to the writing forces of this film – Shashank Khaitan & Sumit Roy, who guided me through the narrative journey of our film. Special mention to Ishita Moitra, who brought so much humour, introspection, and cinema drama to the screenplay and crackling dialogues. The entire writing process would not have been possible without the creative governance & brilliance of Somen Mishra.”
