Director Srijit Mukherji said, “X = Prem is a celebration of love. It is definitely a new age romantic film which reflects the beautiful shades of college romance but very different from the core.

before. Today at Chapter 2, it’s not just a celebration of love but also the admiration we hold for KK. We dedicate this evening to astounding talent whose voice uplifted our mood and made us fall more for the music.”
“Chapter 2 is a destination for the music lovers as we have always promoted music with good food. As the much awaited movie, X = Prem was also shot at Chapter 2 we planned host a musical evening with the cast & crew
members and the music team associated with the movie. The performers today also played a rich tribute to the ever versatile singer, KK, who unfortunately left us for the heavenly abode yesterday, by singing a large number of his popular songs. KK will continue to live through his songs even in the coming years”, said Shiladitya & Debaditya Chaudhury, Co-Founders, Chapter 2.
