Appreciating Mukerji, Bhatt went on to say, “There is a filmmaker here who says that I am going to stand up and make movies which are going to be as good as the best content that is created by the world.”

“Just standing up and mesmerizing them by being rooted in India. They are rooted here, and yet they are very contemporary in their packaging and the way it looks. It has the breath of India. It’s not referenced from somewhere, it comes from his DNA, his gene pool,” Bhatt said.
