Actress Bhumi Pednekar she is happy with the response of her movie ' Saand Ki Aankh 'has been receiving, and is ecstatic that a movie starring two heroines released in Diwali He has managed to stand firm, although two other films were released the same day.

It was amazing to have a heroine-led film on Diwali! It was good to have a different Diwali where a film starring two heroines released and also stood its ground. It's a landmark moment for the industry. We always knew that the collections would grow slow and steady for us because this film literally has no formula, it does not have a male lead in any form - not even in a supporting form, Bhumi said.

It is a story about two women who at the age of 60 decide to practice a sport like shooting.

'Saand Ki Aankh' released on Diwali with the multistarrer commercial biggie 'Housefull 4' and the comedy drama 'Made In China'. All three films have drawn benefit of the extended festive weekend and scored at the box-office.

Bhumi says he knew they had an uphill task at hand, but he always knew that the film will do well in its own way due to the strong content.

The pre- Diwali weekend was a little scary as it's a dull period for collections, but I remember everyone just kept telling me, 'Wait for Monday' and it came and the film grew. It's going along in its own pace and I ' m glad it's entertaining audiences ...

Wherever he goes, people are giving the film so much love, he said.

Saand Ki Aankh, which is based on the lives of India's oldest sharpshooters, Prakashi Tomar and Chandro Tomar, also stars Taapsee Pannu .
