Prem Sagar spoke about several aspects of the show and also shared some anecdotes. Prem Sagar said, "The cast would take a long time to get ready, and it was one of the challenges we faced. Especially Dara Singh, who played the character of Hanuman, took as long as 3-4 hours to get ready," he said. 

Elaborating on the same, he said, "the cast and crew we had was a really patient one, so it did not matter how long a character took to get ready, everyone waited patiently until the whole cast was ready and began shooting."
