Excel Entertainment was founded in 1999 by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. From winning National Awards for their first two films like ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ and ‘Rock On’ to India’s official entry at the 92nd Academy Awards for Gully Boy, the pair have always made their mark in films over the years.
The road trip film is especially loved by the audience, considering its record of success, this decision to focus the genre on women will make movie buffs very happy.
