While speaking to Siddharth Kannan, Shekhar Suman said, "This is providence. This is a godsend." He added that this cannot just happen to anyone who is out of work for 12-13 years and is going through the worst phase of his life. Suman added, "You’re in a deep abyss where you are despondent, you have given up, you’re almost on the verge of giving up it’s almost like you’re becoming suicidal. ‘Ab toh kuch nahi ho sakta’. But then there is faith… you’re hanging on to the last vestige of faith…"

The actor further added that one needs to fight for themselves till the time the audience is finally ready to accept you.

However, according to the actor, these false things created a wrong perception and cost him work over the years. He also mentioned that even Bhansali had similar thoughts till the time he worked with him and saw the reality himself.
