Earlier, Arjun said in a statement that Sardar Ka Grandson ‘connected to (his) soul’ and said that Neena’s character was very similar to his own maternal grandmother. Addressing his director, he said, “You gave me solid material that connected to me so deeply and instantly because of the story’s uncanny similarity with my grandparents’ lives in various ways. Moreover, the character of Sardar in the film is very similar to my Nani. She was actually a riot when you interacted with her and I could see her in Sardar, every step of the way! I was literally living through various phases, emotions and memories some mine some theirs.”
