Danish Taimoor was asked about the chemistry between him and Yasir Nawaz, since this was not the first time that he was working with the acclaimed director.

Director Yasir Nawaz praised the whole cast and crew of the film. He urged Pakistanis in Pakistan and around the world to watch their film to support Pakistani cinema.
"I have made this film with my heart and Insha Allah, I will be successful," he said.
