Talking about it, he says, “I’ve been receiving calls and messages ever since the movie released. Everybody is loving my character, Devi. I even had Hrithik Roshan and Geeta Kapoor walk up to me at the premiere and congratulate me for doing this role. Who knows I might even win some awards for this one (laughs).”
Paritosh also revealed that he was the first choice for this role. “The makers did many auditions for this role. Even I had to give many auditions but was always the first choice. I’ve known Raaj Shaandilyaa since our Comedy Circus days and I’m really glad that I’m finally working in his production.”
