Talking to Mid Day, Raveena Tandon said, “He told everyone that he knows me since the last 120 years. There’s a comfort factor with him. We spoke non-stop on the set, but when the episode was telecast, I realized that they had edited out a major chunk due to time constraints. We then told each other, ‘Why did we talk so much?

We kept remembering [anecdotes from] the film’s shoot. We go back 29 years, so one can well imagine our conversation,” she added.

Talking about the episode, Raveena Tandon told Bombay Times, “The launch episode was a blast; we shot for three days non-stop. We had performances by TV stars, who are friends of our contestants, which led to a unique introduction. It’s really exciting and a lot of fun because the concept is so different, intriguing and interesting. The makers had kept the names of the contestants a secret even from us. It was very fascinating to watch it all unfold. Even while we were there, sitting as judges, it was a surprise. They kept it such a secret that even the vanity vans didn’t have the names on them. So, one didn’t know who was inside the van. It was like a James Bond movie set-up"

Raveena also elaborated on how she plans to play her role as a judge on the show: “I have always been the kind of person who encourages and motivates others. I don’t think judging means that you only sit and criticize. Everyone is trying to do their best and no one intentionally wants to give a bad performance, but sometimes things go wrong. A judge should be sensitive and give the participants’ morale a boost. A good judge is basically one who points out the goof-ups, but also tells the participant that it’s not the end of the road.”
