Interestingly, in the interview, Ali Abbas Zafar said that they are struggling with the title and that's why Amazon has not been able to make an official announcement yet. Adding more to the conversation, he said that on various social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter, people have been asking to release the show now.

Their series was supposed to drop in the last quarter of 2020, and the team will stick to that deadline, he added. Adding further, he mentioned that if the show was ready, they would have released it now because the lockdown period is quite a good time to grab eyeballs.
