While talking about the movie, recently Kapoor reacted to the tremendous advance booking of his film. While promoting it in Delhi, the Shamshera actor was asked about the record-breaking numbers made through its early sales.
The actor said that he “cannot take these figures and all seriously because till the audience doesn’t see the film, the game doesn’t begin.” He even revealed that it is Alia Bhat who is more excited about the advance bookings. “She is a trade analyst now. She is noting everything, this much is open here, this is the response there,” Ranbir said.
