Previously, the actor publicly called out Qureshi on his directorial debut and compared the movie with a TV commercial. 

Commenting on producer Rashid Khuwaja’s post on Facebook, Shahid had said that commercials are of 45 seconds and that producers should be "held responsible for getting directors who have no experience when it comes to film". 

Shahid’s comments sparked a debate within the industry, with many people weighing in on Qureshi's ability as a filmmaker.

In response to his critical remarks, Qureshi accepted the criticism wholeheartedly and replied to the actor gently. “I respect his views and hope he has seen the film before sharing his opinion," he said.
