Sarna had told previously told Firstpost that how the film is nothing less than magic, "I can only assure you one thing that this will be the biggest film of 2020. And the kind of work put up by the director, DoP (Director of Photography), hair and makeup, costume, and the actors is commendable. Everyone has given 110 percent, and beyond that. The film is looking very authentic, which is very important. I'm very sure that it will touch millions of hearts."
