Celebrities Rajkummar Rao, Hansal Mehta, Sayani Gupta, Adil Hussain, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Ram Sampath and Sona Mohapatra attended the screening held on Saturday here.

After a successful run in Karnataka, Reddy's internationally acclaimed directorial debut will hit theatres across India on June 3 with English subtitles.

Calling the film "extraordinary", Kiran said in a statement: "ItÂ’s so charming and so funny that I was completely absorbed and drawn into this world. I really hope that other people will give this a chance and go and see it because I genuinely believe that itÂ’s a film that everyone should go out and watch."

Rajkummar lauded the film and said that a person is living the life of the characters from the movie.
