Thank You For Coming is a sex comedy, in the lines of Masti, Kya Kool, and Golmaal, among others.

Whoever has followed our promotional journey knows that this film is not about man vs. woman.” The actress highlighted that orgasm is a metaphor in the film. “Our film is against patriarchy, and patriarchy is not gender specific. It’s a way of thinking. It’s a school of thought people believe in. It is about generational conditioning. The film is about all these things.”
She adds that its very fun and humorous. Bhumi Pednekar guarantees that people will step out of the cinema halls feeling happy. “It conveys a lot of profound things while making you laugh.”
