He added, “We want to take this film to the theatres for his friends, family, and fans. We all owe this to Rishiji, one of the silver screen legends. I am grateful to Ritesh (Sidhwani, producer) and Farhan (Akhtar, producer) for investing in the movie not just monetarily, but also emotionally." 

3. In one of his previous interviews, Trehan had appreciated Rishi Kapoor's professionalism and how he got back to shooting a day after his sister's death.
