The 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. Such a number has never been achieved by any Bollywood film ever.

The teaser for the action-packed movie was unveiled on the video-sharing platform Wednesday at 8 am, 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,” 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.”

Hrithik and Katrina, who shared a crackling chemistry in the hit film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, have also been appreciated for their good looks in the movie by star friends like Priyanka Chopra, Karan Johar, Abhishek Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor.

Bang Bang is due to release October 2, and promises excitement and adrenaline-pumping action.
