Aneez Bazmee’s multi-starrer comic caper Thank You had its premiere yesterday, the 6th April at Chandan Cinemas, Juhu, Mumbai and BollySpice was there! It was a pretty small informal event where the lead stars and close well-wishers (along with eminent critics, of course) gathered for the first screening. The male leads of Thank You – Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Irrfan Khan and Suniel Shetty – made an entry at the premiere amidst fireworks and an elephant! Director Aneez Bazmee and Ronnie Screwala, CEO of UTV Productions were present as well. Unfortunately, main lead Sonam Kapoor who was just released from the hospital was not able to make it and show her support. Also absent were the other female leads, Rima Sen and Celina Jaitley. Also present were music director Wajid and actress Rakhi Tandon.
Aneez spoke to BollySpice stating that Thank You is different from other comedies based on straying husbands because it has not only the comic factor but emotions as well. Wajid, who had come to show his support, refuted claims of Thank You’s popular song ‘Razia’ being a competition to his ‘Munni Badnaam’ saying each song is unique and it’s great to have been setting such trends in the music industry. Agreeing that there haven’t been any big hits this year so far, he said that F.A.L.T.U. seemed to be doing pretty good business and he was hopeful that a big-budgeted movie like Thank You would do good business as well. And as far as Akshay Kumar’s so called claims that he would buy an IPL team if Thank You would do well, he exclaimed, “Pehle picture release toh hone do!”
All the stars hoped that after seeing the movie, it would be the audience who would say Thank You to them for giving such a good movie. Whether their wish will be fulfilled or not is something we will come to know only on Friday. But before that do catch our review of the movie on BollySpice.com.
