Shaheen in her note to Arjun wrote, “Dearest Arjun, You are a kind, gentle and wise soul- In all our interactions I’m always left with a feeling of positivism. Through all ups and downs you always spread light. It’s what I aspire to become as well. My first book is a small attempt at that. I hope you like it.”

Earlier, while discussing the book at an event in Mumbai, Alia Bhatt broke down while talking about her sister's battle with depression.
