Pankaj admits worrying about Atal Bihari Vajpayee's portrayal 

In an interview with ANI, ahead of the film’s release Pankaj Tripathi opened up about how delving into the life and work of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, will essentially reorient one's perspective on modern-day politicians and politics. The actor also revealed how he had the opportunity of being in the former Indian Prime Minister's presence, courtesy of the two political rallies that Tripathi attended.

He said, "After preparing and reading about Atal ji's characteristics, you would not feel the same way about modern-day leaders. Politicians, who were not just his opponents but even his staunchest critics, respected him and adhered to his legislative etiquette. It is tough to find an opponent for Atal in Indian politics. I was wondering if I could do justice to this. But I have attended two of Atal ji's political rallies. I went to listen to him, standing in the crowd five hundred metres away. The personality of Atal Bihari Vajpayee is such that it cannot be compared to present-day politicians."
