Apart from Bhumi Pednekar, Thank You For Coming also stars Bigg Boss 13’s Shehnaaz Gill, and social media influencers Kusha Kapila, Dolly Singh and Shibani Bedi. Pradhuman Singh Mall, Natasha Rastogi, Gautmik, Sushant Divgikar, Saloni Daini, Dolly Ahluwalia, Karan Kundrra and Anil Kapoor are also in the film.
Thank You For Coming has been written by Radhika Anand and comedian Prashasti Singh. The coming-of-age chick flick is co-produced by Anil Kapoor Films and Communication Network and Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures.
String Reveals’s film critic Saibal Chatterjee called Thank You For Coming “more erratic than erotic.” He wrote, “The film not only fails to rid itself of its flabby frivolity but it also makes the audience wade through massive amounts of verbiage that often lapses into unintelligible blabber. Laboured, hackneyed and exhausting, Thank You for Coming makes the same point over and over again until it has absolutely nothing, fresh or otherwise, left to say.”
Thank You For Coming enjoyed a grand premiere at the 48th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 15. At TIFF, the film received an overwhelming response.
