However, they refused to see the film themselves, preferring to purchase a ticket to watch a regular show.
Onlookers at the special screenings say that Shahid’s family categorically refused to watch the film along with the members of the industry, as “they did not want to burden the makers”. Once the movie hit the marquee, the Azmis bought their tickets and watched the film.
Says a source close to the director, “Shahid’s family was present for all the screenings in the city. The late lawyer’s mother insisted they would watch during a regular screening.” Mehta confirms, “Shahid’s mother told us they won’t watch the film for free.”
