Meanwhile, in an exclusive chat with Filmibeat, last year in February, Ruslaan Mumtaz had spoken about the reason behind making his Indo-African film Namaste Wahala that revolved around an interracial love story between an Indian man and a Nigerian woman. On this, the Teree Sang: A Kidult Love Story actor had said, "This film was offered to me last year. The makers had said that this is an African film that is to be shot and released in Africa. The makers made this movie because they think that Indian and African culture is very similar. Apart from that, Bollywood is a big thing in Africa. So, everybody knows about Bollywood. Hence, they wanted to make this movie which will have elements of Bollywood." On the work front, Ruslaan was also seen on the popular TV show, Yeh Rishtey Hai Pyaar Ke alongside Shaheer Sheikh, Riya Sharma and Kaveri Priyam.
