“I wanted to do the film because it’s my kind of zone, it’s young and fun and about friendship. I play a girl-next-door and any girl would relate to it.

“It’s about her journey with the man she loves, and with her friends. It’s a very Rajkumar Hirani zone film. It’s not just comedy or chemistry between four friends, but it also carries a very strong message,” Priya said.

About the film, the director who turned 44, said: “It’s just a film’s title, and it doesn’t mean that the world is ending in 2016. It’s a slapstick comedy where some youngsters come to know that the world is ending in 2016 and it’s about how they then plan to spend the last seven days of their life.”

Popular TV star Harshad Chopra, who stars in the movie, said, “I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I’m feeling all the emotions, all in an extreme manner. There is a lot of nervousness and also tremendous confidence because the project is extremely good.”

The film also stars “Pyaar Ka Punchnama” star Divyendu Sharma and “Comedy Nights With Kapil” actor Kiku Sharda.

“2016 The End”, also produced by Jaideep Chopra, is still filming and gearing up for mid-2016 release all over.
