This is what Big B had to say after a "phenomenal" response from cine-goers, critics and fans:
On his blog, Big B described Pinkas a "social thriller:" "The question of the context and the premise of the film shall always be of prime interest, and many dwell their queries on that ... much is not spelt out because of the nature of the story and, of course, the nature of its genre -- a social thriller!" So why a social thriller? "Well, because the story is in the thriller genre and while we are busy narrating the story, there shall be occasion to swiftly brush past the issue of society and morals and conduct."
Meanwhile, Pink touched the softest corner in actress Kangana Ranaut, who ended up sending an emotional text to Andrea following a special screening on September 15. In her message, Kangana wrote, "I wish I wasn't so emotionally fragile and could say this in person but I loved your work - so honest and so natural. Congratulations and I feel this will be a big success, so be ready for it."
Bollywood stars just could not stop raving about Big B's film:
