“But people are going and watching it and it feels very nice. I am happy that the film is doing well. I will not talk about figures as for me it means (that) people are going to theatres and watching the film. I am not that concerned about Rs 100 crore or Rs 200 crore club. I am here to entertain people,” added the actor.
Alia told reporters that she was happy to see the kind of love coming her way for her performance in the film. The actor also says she was excited to meet children of her mentor Karan Johar, who became the father of twins through surrogacy last week.
