which was to take place in the evening. Couple games were played and customized movie
merchandise were given as gifts to participants and game winners.

the lead pair Tanuj Virwani and Neha Hinge, debutant director & co-producer Joe Rajan,

The theme of the event had a lot of romance love in the air feel, which was depicted
through the set design. The cast and crew launched the music by opening the heart-shaped
album cover. This was followed by a performance from the music director Vipin Patwa. Remo
Fernandes, who sang the title track of the movie, put on an entertaining show for the
