It’s incredible how life has come full circle, and 10 years later, we’re still making audiences laugh and reminisce about the unforgettable journey of the Fukrey gang…”
As the actor went in, the atmosphere inside Gaiety Galaxy was nothing short of euphoric, and as the film began, the crowd’s excitement was palpable.
