Shahid Kapoor addresses the film’s comparison with the TV show 

On Thursday, during a press conference about the film in New Delhi, Shahid talked about the film's comparison with the TV show. He said, "Several films have been made on robots like Chitti Robot ( Rajanikant's 'Robot') and Ra.One is also there. So that is a good thing kyunki thodi familiarity hona acha hota hai kyunki viral audience ko shayd samajh hi ni aaye ki aap kya kr rhe ho...(because some familiarity is needed because the viral audience probably won't understand what you are doing). But because it (Ridhima Pandit's TV show) is already here, we thought to take it one step further and make it more complicated."
