When asked about his great chemistry with Shivangi and whether it becomes a challenge to win over fans with another actress, Sai Ketan Rao stated, “Yes, people are fixed to a certain notion, but as actors, one should explore, and even the audience should be ready to explore and digest. It is sometimes difficult, but we are working towards a better goal too. And definitely, I would work back with Shivangi if the opportunity arises; we both did speak on that. Opportunity should come our way.”
