100 days of Aanandam. For a small film with featuring an entirely new cast and an entirely new crew, this is more than we could have ever asked for. I take this opportunity to thank each and every member of my crew, 51 of whom are on this poster. Out of that, for 27 of them Aanandam was their first film and only 9 of them have worked on 4 films or more. But most importantly I want to thank You the audience. You have been so kind and loving to us. You've overlooked all of our limitations and flaws accepted our little film with open arms.
Also, we are winding up our theatrical run today. The last ever show of Aanandam on the big screen will be the 5pm show at PVR, Lulu Mall, Ekm. We, Team Aanandam, will be attending that show, so if you're around and want one last dose of Aanandam on the big screen, drop in and watch the show with us.
These 100 days are dedicated to you more than anyone else. Thank you from the bottom of our heart for all the love and Aanandam you have give us. Till next time... #IniAanandame #100DaysofAanandam
