Nawazuddin Siddiqui – I really liked the trailer of the film. Theme of the film and performances of all actors are looking really good.”
Aamir Khan plays quirky character of Music composer Shakti Kumar in the film, talking about Aamir’s role, Nawazuddin said, “I think actors shouldn’t have any image. He should be able to play any character. I am very happy that Aamir Khan played character like this. Earlier, actors were image conscious but now things are changing and they are trying to experiment with their roles.”
Nitesh Tiwari – I felt really emotional while watching the film. After long time, I am not saying this because I have worked with Aamir sir, but it’s genuinely really nice movie.
Talking about Aamir khan’s character in the film, Tiwari said, “Shakti Kumar’s character is completely opposite Aamir sir’s character in real life. His character is very quirky and cheap but from inside, he has very soft heart and he guides Zaira’s character in the film. Whatever Aamir Khan does, he does it with lot of conviction and this film is also no exception to that”
Anil Kapoor – Sometime, I think each time how Aamir makes good film with great script and cast. I feel this film will also be appreciated by the audience just like his previous films. Personally, I really like Aamir’s and Zaira’s performance in the film.

This movie touches your heart. Zaira is very impressive in the film and other casts of film are outstanding as well.
Rajkumar Hirani – I have no words to express my feelings. It’s such a pure, inspiring and entertaining film. Everybody should watch this film. Aamir is the fun quotient in the film. He is just extra-ordinary in the film. He brings smile on audience face whenever he appears onscreen. Zaira also worked brilliantly in the film.”
