'Munjya' promises to be a groundbreaking film, blending unexpected twists with a heavy dose of humor. Abhay, who leads the film, expressed his passion for innovative projects, stating, "Creating something which has never been done before is always something I’ve been inclined towards. Munjya is a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience that has unexpected twists with a heavy dose of humour. Leading a love story like such feels like a dream coming to life."

Reflecting on his excitement and the project's uniqueness, Abhay shared, "To be a part of something that hasn’t happened before in Bollywood itself makes it special for me. You always want to be a part of love stories in Bollywood and I’m extremely grateful to Lord Ganesha for a love story this wicked yet loving!"

Speaking about the response to the film, Sharvari says, “I’m thrilled to see the outstanding start that Munjya has received at the box office. We have made this film with a lot of love, passion and hard work and I have been praying ever since that Munjya becomes a huge hit. It is a film that pushed me to do something remarkably different so early on in my career and I have to thank my producer Dinesh Vijan and my director Aditya Sarpotdar for his belief in me to pull off this role.”

Sharvari has got unanimous love for being the ‘surprise factor’ of Munjya! Her song Taras is a super-hit too as it climbs the music charts. 

The young actor says, “I have been receiving a lot of love for being the surprise factor of Munjya. I can say this with a lot of humility that whatever appreciation I’m receiving is because of the vision of the makers who put their trust in me to pull off this role! It wasn’t easy for me to keep this massive secret from being revealed. Only my family knew it and I swore them to secrecy. So, for me and my family this is a huge moment to celebrate.”
