"The pictures shouldn't have come out. We were shooting at Carter road (in Bandra, a suburb in Mumbai) so it came out. But I am very happy. The film is being made with a lot of happiness and when a film is made with happiness, it turns out good. It's a great story," Hirani told PTI.

The director says the team hasn't locked a title yet for the movie. They have shot 60 per cent of the film and are now gearing up for another schedule in New York.
