The film was announced in 2013 but releasing in 2018. What was the reason behind getting it delayed?
We announced this movie in 2013 but shooting got delayed. The main shooting started in 2016 & 2017. Initially we had six days shooting schedule then due to some reasons shooting came on hold for more than 2 years. Major part of the film shot in 2017 and completed in 2018.

Shooting is completed. Now post production is going on. We are starting our publicity also. We are planning to release it on 19th October this year.
How the idea of having such title (Bhaiyyaji Superhitt) came in mind?
We thought of so many titles initially. We thought of 'Superhit' then 'Hit Hit' and 'Hit Hai' but we could not reach to a conclusion. Finally we thought of 'Bhaiyyaji Superhitt. In the film his (Sunny Deol's) name is Bhaiyyaji so this title is derived from there.

Since you have already used the word 'superhit' in your film's title so is there any strategy to make it real superhit?
We have a grand script. We have made a fantastic movie. Apart from that we have grand music, action and comedy. The other part is publicity. We have good publicity budget. So I thing all these things put together will make it superhit.
What is the genre of the film?
This is Action-Comedy. You can say it’s like film 'Golmaal'.
Sunny Deol is known as an action hero. Taking him into a comedy film can be a challenge. Do you think so?
This is a matured love story of Sunny & Preiti Zinta. This role suits him. Since this is an Action-Comedy so action is also there which suits Sunny. This is fine blend of action and comedy.

I am expecting at least 100 crore. I think this time Sunny's film will reach in 100 crore club.
