After receiving handwritten notes from megastar Amitabh Bachchan, the team of "Bareilly Ki Barfi", helmed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, has been praised by Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani. "Congrats Ashwiny Iyer. Brilliant work by entire team especially Rajkummar Rao and Bitti's parents. Dialogues were a class apart," Irani tweeted on Tuesday.
"Bareilly Ki Barfi" is a romantic comedy film, which released on August 18. Earlier, Amitabh had described the film as "a delightful" one with "such competent and excellent performances".
He later sent a bouquet along with a handwritten note praising the work of its actors Kriti Sanon and Rajummar.
"This feels like a milestone in itself! You've been such an inspiration. Thank you so so much sir! This really made my day! Amitabh Bachchan," Kriti, who plays Bitti in the film, tweeted on Tuesday.
Rajkummar's day was also made when he received a handwritten note from "the legend".
According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, "Bareilly Ki Barfi" is doing "steady " business at the box office. He shared via a tweet on Tuesday that the film has collected Rs 24.67 crore in India.
The comedy-romance is produced by Junglee Pictures and BR Studios. This is the first time Kriti, Ayushmann and Rajkummar have worked together. Kriti had earlier said: "Since they come from a theatre background, their approach towards a character is quite similar and that helped me to enhance my performance; because acting is also about reacting to your co-actors."
The movie is inspired by the English translation of a French book, titled Ingredients of Love and makes a smooth shift from Paris (in the novel) to Bareilly. The film follows the life of a small-town girl who lives her life on her own terms. Contrary to the prejudices about an 'Adarsh Naari', she smokes, drinks and comes home late every night-just like a boy; that's how she was brought up by her dad.
