Actress Deepika Padukone, whose recent release Piku minted over Rs 29 crore within four days of its release, says that she hopes films don't need promotional activities in future.

In her review of Shoojit Sircar's Piku, film critic Anupama Chopra said, "The film speaks its truth with simplicity and heart. It made me laugh and it made me cry." She gave the film, starring Deepika Padukone, Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan, four-star rating.
