He added, "I drew courage from this because I had a reference point in Kishore Kumar, who pulled it off! He was always the one to experiment and take risks. His versatility and genius is a huge motivator and he has set such high standards for all of us to live up to. Whenever I face a creative block, I think of Kishore sir and I snap out of my life state. That’s how deep an impact Kishore Kumar has had on my life.”
The film also starring Ananya Panday, Paresh Rawal, Anu Chopra and others in pivotal roles is set to hit the big screens on 25th August, 2023.ALSO READ: Ayushmann Khurrana stops using the words 'ladies and getlemen' during his addressals- Here's why
