Earlier, while at the King of Kotha promotional event, Rana recalled an incident when he had scolded the producers of a Hindi film that Dulquer was shooting with a Bollywood actress. He did not take the name of the female star but revealed, "While he (Dulquer) was standing in the corner with the spot boy, a big Hindi heroine, who was doing that movie was engrossed in a phone conversation about shopping in London with her husband. Her lack of focus affected the shots' quality, frustrating those on set. Despite the disruptions caused by the situation, Dulquer remained patient and understanding, defusing tension and maintaining a harmonious environment."

Later, internet users speculated that the actress could be Sonam as she and Dulquer have worked together in his Bollywood debut film, The Zoya Factor, which came out in 2019.
