Mumbai: `Bang Bang` team, including actors Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif, are overwhelmed with the response to the movie`s teaser, which attracted over 2.3 million YouTube views in 24 hours.
The teaser for the action-packed movie was unveiled on the video-sharing platform Wednesday at 8 a.m., and the number of views has been on a rise ever since.
The film`s production banner Fox Star Studios, director Siddharth Anand and actors Hrithik and Katrina are in a celebratory mood.
Hrithik, who has made the wait for the film`s release tough for movie buffs with his death-defying stunts in the teaser, is proud of the "entire `Bang Bang` team and especially Sid Anand for achieving this milestone".
"I`m happy that we were able to give 58 seconds of joy to all the viewers. It`s all about them eventually. Gratitude," he said in a statement.
Katrina said: "It is truly an overwhelming response for our teaser and I`m very happy that everyone is waiting for `Bang Bang` as eagerly as all of us."
`Bang Bang` is due to release Oct 2, and promises edge-of-the-seat excitement and adrenaline-pumping action.
Vijay Singh, CEO, Fox Star Studios, is "absolutely thrilled" with the response to the trailer, while the director said: "Apart from the numbers, which are astounding so say the least, it`s the reactions which are numbing."
"Every crew member has worked in extreme conditions to present the visuals which are, to put it politely, blowing everyone`s minds. So well done team - the journey has just begun and what a beginning! Thank you audience," said Anand, who had earlier directed `Salaam Namaste`, `Ta Ra Rum Pum` and `Anjaana Anjaani`.
