During the trailer launch event, the team of Shehzada also spoke to the media. 

'I hope Shehzada is a bigger hit than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2'

In 2022, Kartik was one of the actors who saved the industry amid tough times. His film Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 proved to be a blockbuster at the box office. Even when it was released on OTT, the audience couldn't stop praising the actor. Now, everyone has high hopes with his upcoming film, Shehzada. Even Kartik hopes that Shehzada becomes a bigger hit than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. He said, "I hope Shehzada is a bigger hit than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. I hope it entertains the audience. I want more and more people to watch Shehzada." 

The Freddy actor further added, "Fingers crossed. I hope Shehzada does well. Our industry needs it. The film is a massy family entertainer, which audience see in huge numbers."

'I hope people love us a lot more than what they did in Luka Chuppi'

Kartik has reunited with Kriti after Luka Chuppi. The Laxman Utekar directorial performed well at the box office. The audience loved watching their chemistry on the big screen. Now, Kriti and Kartik are back with Shehzada and the trailer shows that they will impress cinema lovers yet again. They are also seen grooving to a peppy number. Kriti spoke about her on-screen chemistry with Kartik. She also hoped that people would love them more than they did in Luka Chuppi. 

Kriti shared, "I think, we look really good together. Our on-screen chemistry has been liked in Luka Chuppi, I hope people like it in Shehzada too. It's a glamorous avatar, which I had not done for a while. I hope people like it. We have got good tuning, we think alike and are very comfortable with each other. Nothing has changed, and I hope people love us a lot more than what they did in Luka Chuppi." 

Producer Bhushan Kumar too said that Shehzada is a 'bigger family entertainer' than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. He said, "I feel, this is a bigger family entertainer than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. So I hope, we will do better business than Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2."
