On April 2nd Rishi Kapoor also engaged with director Kunal Kohli on twitter. Kohli applauded Rishi Kapoor for his dafli playing skills. He tweeted writing, "Nobody plays the dafli like you! In fact.

Made as much by the way you played it."
Rishi quickly responded and thanked Kohli for his message. He said, "Thank you. Much credit to late Shree. P.L. Raj ji the choreographer.
