Director Hashvardhan Kulkarni says he has a problem with the labelling of the upcoming movie as a sex-comedy as he feels in India the genre is looked down upon as something "crass" and "vulgar".
"It is not a sex comedy... actually the problem is the term sex comedy is associated here with a lot of films which this movie is not like. The flavour of the film is very different. Sex comedy is associated with being crass and vulgarity. 'Hunterrr' is not like that. It is a coming-of-age comedy," Kulkarni said.

Filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane, the co-producer of the movie, said the definition of sex comedy is very narrow in India as compared to the west.
"In Hollywood there is an 'American Pie' and also 'It Happened One Night'. The definition of the genre here is very narrow," he said.

Motwane said that he and his Phantom team were very impressed after watching "Hunterrr" and decided to back the project as they felt the film needed their support.
"Hunterrr" also stars Radhika Apte and Sai Tamhankar, who play Devaiah's interest in the film, which is releasing this Friday.Apte said her character is very modern despite a traditional upbringing.

"My character's name is Trupti. She is quite independent. She is a very middle class girl and is someone who had a traditional upbringing and ideas about marriage. But her perception changes when a Mandar comes to her life," Apte said.
