During a session at FICCI Frames 2014, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra revealed, ''I hope I get to connect with Guru Dutt through a film. Any filmmaker or a director wants to connect with him. Looking back at India's history, we had just lost a war to China. That's the time when Guru Dutt came up with his best work. The entire disillusionment of our country was kind of portrayed through his cinema. That's something which has a very interesting connect with me.''

Mehra's last film BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG was inspired by the life of athlete Milkha Singh and was a huge commercial success.
