The lead cast of the movie Shanvi Srivastava and Kuri Pratap also have thanked people for their love.
Unlike other movies of Darshan, Tarak is a family entertainment. Instead of being an action hero, Darshan is seen as a family man in the movie. Though the film has received mixed reviews, collection wise it has fared very well.
