Sonu Sood is thrilled with the positive response to the crime thriller 'Shootout at Wadala' from both the critics and the audiences alike and says the combination is something very tough to achieve. "I always say that it is not easy to get the audience's whistles and the critics stars together. 'Shootout at Wadala' has got both and that is very encouraging. It is fabulous that both the critics and the audiences have liked the film," the 39-year-old told reporters at Haji Ali Dargah where he had gone to thank fans (and the almighty) for the success of the film.
Directed by Sanjay Gupta, 'Shootout at Wadala' released last week. Sonu was accompanied by Tusshar Kapoor, who plays gangster Sheikh Munir in the film that revolves around the encounter of gangster Manya Surve, played by John Abraham.
Tusshar too seemed ecstatic with the reception to the film and his role as the public started addressing him by his screen name 'Munir'. Sonu, who plays Dawood in the film, believes it is a parameter of success. "People are liking the film. You saw they are calling him (Tusshar) Munir and when actors are called by character's name that shows the impact of the film," said Sonu, whose last successful outing was as Chhedi Singh in 'Dabangg'.
"We are happy to be standing where we shot the first scene of the film. We had said that we would come here to thank the god if the film is a success and today we have," added Tusshar.
