Excited about bringing alive the aura of these iconic heroes, Shahid told TOI, "I'm grateful to Zee for having approached me with such an interesting proposition. It's a sheer privilege to pay homage to great men like Dev saab and Shammi ji. They are both exceptional and superlative talents who have made invaluable contributions to the world of Indian films. If I can recreate even a fraction of their magic, I will consider it an accomplishment and a humble tribute to these luminaries."
