"A comment had reached me concerning Alia's love graph in the film," said the director.

We published a 2:37 film, but you shoot a lot and edit away parts you think will test audience patience.

I felt I had trimmed Shiva and Isha's love story and Isha's attraction to Shiva too severely, so I inserted a few dialogues in the second half.

It's subtle, so you may not see it until you've seen the picture three or four times, but I hope it makes the film's trip easier," Ayan said.

The film grossed Rs 431 crore globally, making it the year's highest-grossing Hindi film.
