Talking about the collaboration, Gurmeet said, "It’s an honour to work on a project that is connected to the roots of India. Maharana Pratap was known for his courage and bravery, I am very happy to get a chance to know more about his life. It is also a challenge to portray a strong character like Maharana Pratap himself. I am thankful to Disney+ Hotstar and Nitin Desai for giving me this project."

Ridhima added, "I am elated to be a part of a vision and script like Maharana. Depicting the strong and resilient character of Maharani Ajabde is indeed a challenge in itself. Working on a project of this scale with some of the brilliant minds from our industry such as Nitin Desai and for one of the biggest OTT platforms Disney+ Hostar is a dream come true."
