Ariana was scheduled for performance on December 29 at the Cosmopolitan’s Chelsea Theatre —her first full performance since both the death of former boyfriend Mac Miller and her break-up with Pete Davidson.

Kher, who is narrating the character of Singh, said, “It’s nobody’s right to ask us to show our film to them before releasing it. The film is based on the book (by the same title), and it is based on facts.
‘Music companies should also respect everybody. It’s a world of interdependence.

“I’m very happy and proud that India has taken a step forward and people can live and love the way they want to love and that’s very important to me. And I think it should be vital to everybody in this world,” added the actress.
