“We’ve been saying this in all interviews, our goal was never to glorify Iqbal or his crimes,” Aleeha stated. “Our goal is just for people to see this, recognize the character, and see how this man was living like a normal man. Once you see the film, if there is any child abuser, rapist, or molester around you, please identify him for the sake of your children. This was our message.”

When Censor Board didn’t give the green signal to the film and at the same time Javed Iqal who’s now Kurki gaining international recognition Yasir Hussain criticized the Censor Board.
He said, “As long as there’s no acceptance, a certain type of movies or content can’t be made. Censorship needs to be fixed. Across the world, being ‘censored’ means that this thing of yours can’t be watched by a certain age group, and then it is granted a license. It doesn’t mean that after adding beep beep beep, you cancel the premiere.”
