When inquired why isn't he experimenting with genres in his upcoming film, Mengal said that he feels he can handle romance the best out of all genres, and that is why he doesn't wish to experiment.

"Abhi tukk Pakistani film scene mei romance ka khala (space) khali tha or mujhe lagta hai ye mere liye hi bacha hua tha," he asserted.

Eager to release his second film on Eid, Mengal said that he would again want to work with completely new faces.

"It is important to encourage the new talent in our country and it's about time it emerged and came forward," he replied.
