"I am super thrilled and excited that this year has ended in such a positive note for everyone. It's something we worked really hard for and happy that it's showing the results. Who does not like box office numbers? But for a film like this, which was an underdog in the first part and even this time, no one really expected it to do well,'' she said.

"When this kind of a film does well, it makes me extra happy," Richa said.
