Qureshi clarified the story of the show in a recent interview, calling it a fictional story, and asking the audience to take it as a piece of entertainment.

“I am receiving a lot of messages from people who told me, without mentioning the names of their tribes and areas, that they moved out from their native areas because of such rivalries. Their ancestors were indulged in rivalries, making it difficult for them to live in those areas. I received many such messages, and yes, they can connect to the story.”

He continued, “A few friends were upset as well, wondering why Pathans are shown in such a light. The thing is that we did not specifically say they are Pathan. It’s just the tone of speaking. Nowhere is anyone saying that they’re Pathan.”
