Even though it was world premiere at Cineworld Haymarket, London none of the actors were able to make an appearance at the event disappointing many fans. However, director Abhinay Deo was there London and told us that Imran and Aamir could not be present in London because they are busy with promoting the film in India.
A red carpet was laid inside Cineworld, Haymarket and Dhol artists were attracting the crowds on the streets to the event. Inside, Deo was busy giving one-to-one interviews and was also being mobbed by Hindi cinema fans all who wanted to meet the talented filmmaker.
