"Aur jo audience itni expectation se aayi hai meri film dekhne ke liye, I want to apologise to them also. Iss dafa maine unko entertain nahi kar paaya. Koshish humne puri ki thi. Lekin jo log itne expectation se aaye, unhe mazaa nahi aaya. So, I'm feeling very bad that we were not able to entertain them," he told reporters at the event.
