Were you conscious of 'market pressures' during scripting and filming?
No. I was given a free hand. The film doesn't fit into a predictable format. For example, Sushmita Sen doesn't do an item song.

It's not fair to slot films like that. I'd say it's a different kind of a mainstream commercial film.
