Vivek Oberoi has asked the members of the film fraternity to come out in support of the release of the film.
Unhappy about fighting the battle alone the actor said ANI; " Here are very powerful people who have approached courts through their lawyers. They can obstruct us briefly but they won't be able to stop us. The release might have been postponed but we are firm in our resolve.”
South Indian actress Kajal Aggarwal has become one of the few celebrities who has lent support to Vivek Oberoi and team. She wrote, "Whoa!! Vivek!! This Looks incredible. Cannot wait to watch.. good luck to the entire team, I'm sure this is going to excel (sic)"

Meanwhile, the actor recently said he "might think" of contesting from Vadodara in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls "if he joins politics".
The actor was participating in an interactive session with students of Parul University here to promote the Omung Kumar-directed film 'PM Narendra Modi'.
He told students that he observed the PM's body language and way of talking to prepare for his role in the biopic. He claimed it took 16 days to finalise his look for the film.
Initially, the biopic PM Narendra Modi was slated to release on April 12, but the makers pushed it ahead by a week due to 'public demand. The release date of 'PM Narendra Modi' has now been set for April 11, when the Lok Sabha elections begin, the makers announced on Friday.
