I know I promised to blog about my Wedding Party 2 filming experience immediately we wrapped. But I later figured it would be best after its had its cinema run and people have seen it. I am glad it was a huge box office success because for the first time since Kajola, I actually thought I was going to disappoint my producers and the audience again. Even though people felt strongly about the things they liked/not liked with the film, they still enjoyed it, gave it all their support and made it the highest grossing film of 2017.

I feel its important for me (and all filmmakers) to share experiences, good or bad. It helps everyone on the long run and that’s how we evolve. While sharing this story, I would digress from time to time to highlight some lessons.
