Hi desi fam! How long did it take you to pay off your T-10 MBA loan with MBB/Tech gig?

The IMDB rating was around 3.2 even before the movie had released lol. I have no interest in watching ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’. I know, it will probably (key word “probably”) be an average movie, at best. I was never even a huge fan of the original either.
