It has a message in it and the best part is that people have understood the message. Critics have liked the film and even the audience is liking it. People are going and watching it and it feels very nice. I am happy that the film is doing well. I am not that concerned about Rs 100 crore or Rs 200 crore club. I am here to entertain people.”
