Given the army backdrop of the series, Aly says he is “trying hard to lose weight”, adding: “I am working out, running and also doing mixed martial arts”. He feels OTT as a platform is the best space for an actor. He said, “You can do a lot of creative stuff on this platform, and I always wanted to do something raw on television shows, which would not have been possible. I have never played a lead on television. I feel on OTT an actor gets a freehand to perform and that’s what I have always aimed for”.

As per the reports, there are a few more names which came forward with Aly Goni such as Jasmin Bhasin, Neha Sharma, Jaan Shanu and Eijaz Khan.
