Earlier, during an interaction with DNA, Pankaj spoke at length about being a part of the film. The actor shared that making a two-hour film about Atal Ji's life is like attempting to fit the ocean into a teacup. The former PM seemed to have had an unfathomably great and expansive life. However, even back then, Ravi Jadhav and Rishi Virmani selected significant events from his life and strung them together in a way that resembled a story—complete with a prologue, middle, and conclusion. A political figure who was also a poet is the protagonist of the film, and his private life, poetry, and politics are all shrouded in mystery, and that is to be expected. Over all of this, they have strived for balance.
