Talking about the film, director and producer Umesh Shukla shares, “I am thrilled to again partner with Sony Pictures Films India for Aankh Micholi. The film is very close to my heart and I am proud to have been able to bring such an exciting cast together for the film. The family entertainer is a story of a family of misfits. Since it is a complete family entertainer, we thought of releasing the film in Diwali and I can promise that the audiences will be in for a laugh riot.”
