1. Alia Bhatt was teary-eyed after watching CityLights.

“After watching the film, I was speechless. It was outstanding. We already have a national award winner, Rajkummar Rao in the film. But Patralekha, this is her debut film and she has acted so well which I don’t think I can ever touch upon,” Alia said in a statement

2. Debutant Patralekha has a challenge for her.

“Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar have already done ‘Shahid’ and have set a standard, so I had this pressure to maintain the standard set by them and that was a huge challenge for me,” Patralekha said.

3. CityLights is not lesser than Aashiqui.
“Citylights is an emotional love story which is in no way lesser than ‘Aashiqui’,” Bhatt said here Wednesday during the promotion of the film. He also added, “It is a love story of a rural Indian and it has a heart, which is far more poignant and far more relevant to today’s India”.
4. Rajkummar Rao got drunked for CityLights.
“I don’t drink but I didn’t want to fake it. So I asked Hansal, who is experienced in these matters, on the drink that I should be having. On his advice, I started off with vodka. I had about two pegs but nothing happened. Then I started downing a few more and after about five or six pegs, I was completely gone,” revealed Rajkummar.
5. CityLights has high emotional quotient.
Bhatt says, “The emotional quotient is miles ahead of Metro Manila and one needs courage to make this kind of a film. I feel a good film is like a fire if you touch it it must burn.”

Hansal Mehta says, “I was surprised when I reached the sets on the first day in Rajasthan. I didn’t see Mahesh Bhatt there. There was absolutely no interference from Bhatt saheb. He called me and said be fearless, have honesty and audacity.”
