High Jack has been touted as a stoner comedy. We asked Akarsh either this genre will be supposed in Bollywood and he said, “We can usually hope. Even Go Goa Gone was done and it did well. we never suspicion it in a genre. we suspicion we were creation a film that we were meddlesome in. It’s a humorous film, a situational comedy though it also has thriller elements in it. Stoner comedy is a Hollywood tenure used utterly loosely about a film where people use drugs and do humorous things. So we theory there is some clarity in that. Right now, a enlivening thing is people have responded good to a promos.”

High Jack, that primarily had indeterminate titles like High On a Plane and Udd Gaye Tote, was set to recover on Apr 20. But due to certain Censor Board troubles, it got shifted and will now recover on May 18. Akarsh said, “It wasn’t like a delay happened again and again. There was a procession with a Censor Board that took some time. So this was something that was out of a control. And we was unequivocally penetrating that it doesn’t get too behind from a strange date since all a skeleton combined should not go away. The film’s song is doing great. So we consider we managed to keep that small bit of buzz. We didn’t totally remove it. So that was a good thing.”
