In an earlier interview to The Times Of India, he had told what were the first reactions when the unfortunate news broke out. "There was no time to react. I was shooting in Delhi. I was on the sixth day shoot of a new film, when my son and a close family associate came to Delhi, spoke to my producers and explained the problem. By evening, they got me to Mumbai and soon after, they flew me to New York. I had no time to react or introspect. My son literally forced me into the aircraft and flew here with me. The acceptance comes gradually,” he was quoted.
Throughout thier stay, the actors were paid a visit by celebrities from the industry if they were in NYC. the list is huge and includes names like Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Anupam Kher, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Sachin Tendulkar, and Ritiesh Deshmukh among others.
