• Is your film made to “Gay Issue” what is the story of the film?
Not at all, gay is not the issue of my film. Pinnakin Patel aka pinu runs a restaurant he is a 40 yrs. Old bachelor, till date is not in a relation with any girl. A girl and boy which are his employ fall in love and then he started having the doubt that is he a “Gay”

• Is there anything new in the film which the audience will like to watch?
With film is good, audience will resemble themselves with Pinu’s Charcter, will be sad when he is sad, enjoy and will feel this feelings. And also will laugh on his deeds.

• Any specific reasons to take Vinay Pathak and Gulpanag in Your film?
When I first thought about the film the first name that came to my mind was Vinay and same I can say in case of Gulpanag. They play a very different character in the film.Gul has not played any such character like Renu earlier. She is a great actress and also director’s actress that means that she just gives the best which director require.

• Films also have few bold scenes too between Vinay and Gulpanag?
Ya there are!!Because the topic of the film is bold but there is nothing that audience will not like. It is as per the requirement of the story. As it is the film is for adult not for babies. The film has love, comedy everything.

• Rules and Straight both films are on offbeat films?
I always want to give films which are different. I want to make films on stories and subjects which are usually not being made upon.
