At the launch, Anil Kapoor said, "Of course I am ageing, everybody knows it, I know it. I am not delusional about it. You get emotional, and it’s the first sign of old-age, you get sentimental. I am very emotional… But for me, it’s very simple, it’s the mind and the lifestyle."

Varun Dhawan, who is busy with promotions for his film, 'Dilwale' along with Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Kriti Sanon, spoke about his father David Dhawan's weight issues. "It’s a popular knowledge that my father is not the healthiest person, he has diabetes… I want my father to lose weight," said the actor.
