Aushim Khetarpal, who is one of the producers of the film and also plays the lead role of mentor in the film, said the participation of Gurjar and Shankar in a Bollywood film was a boost for the film, and the film overall should fetch para sportspersons the fame and recognition they deserve.

“They deserve the much-lacking happiness, status and fame. They do double or triple labour in life than us, so they deserve that much of name and fame. If you’ll see them, you will be surprised how they manage their lives, perform in real life (cricket) and how fabulously they perform in front of camera. Sundar has won the gold and is a big boost for all the para athletes and cricketers and of course for this film as well,” said Khetarpal.
