"Major" is shot in Hindi and Telugu, and will be dubbed in Malayalam.
"The numbers are very encouraging but more than that, what gives us joy is the kind of things that are being spoken about the film. When we look at the reaction on the video it feels so nice. One word we are constantly hearing is 'goosebumps'. So, what we loved is that with the kind of conviction we have made the film, it translated into that sentiment. And the numbers are a reflection of that," Sharath Chandra of A+S Productions, one of the production houses associated with the film, told IANS.
