After it was announced that Ali Zafar’s Teefa in Trouble has released globally on Netflix, it seems the actor’s fans are the happiest across the border.
Speaking to an Indian newspaper, Mid-Day, the actor revealed that he has received a number of positive comments from his fans in India.
“India will never be far. The love and admiration I have received, and keep receiving from there will always be close to my heart,” he said.
Ali made his Bollywood debut with Tere Bin Laden in 2010, and since then the actor-singer had garnered a fan following with outings that included Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (2011) and Chashme Buddoor (2013).
“My social media team is quite thrilled with the fan mail and online comments that have come their way since the film’s release,” he said about the film’s release. “I think Indian audiences respond positively to good content, and they will find Teefa entertaining.”
The actor also pointed out that the release of films on the digital platform bears social significance as well, especially in the current political climate. “Moving to OTT has revolutionized how content and cultures can be seen, experienced and shared,” he explained. “More importantly, it is brave and keeps entertainment free from politics.”
