Reacting to the audience’s reaction, Ayan had said, “I only focus on the positive energy. I know that various kinds of reviews have come. I haven’t been able to absorb all those reviews, be it negative reviews, fan theories or what people did not like. I will do that when the time comes. I will take all that into consideration before moving on to part two. Shiva and Isha are modern contemporary characters and so I thought that they should come across like the modern generation. Maine unke dialogues usi jagah se likhe jaha se maine Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani ke dialogues likhe the and it was a 50-50 process between me and Hussain Dalal.”
