Speaking at the occasion, Bhaswar Chatterjee said “My mother was in a very pathetic condition and doctors had no hopes that she will even recover. I am a devotee of Sai Baba and I went to the temple in Kolkata. After I came back and put the flowers on my mother’s forehead, my mother recovered after a week. I am not telling this because I am doing the lead role. But miracles do happen and this is one which I have seen with my own eyes”. The actor appeared in the costume of Sai Baba at the press conference.

Debjit Roy is behind the music composition for this serial. “I have composed music for devotional serials like Mahaprabhu, Rajeswari before. But the music of this serial is different as the other serials were made on personalities from Bengal. But Sai Baba is not from Bengal and I have made efforts to retain the special flavor of his Ghazals. I have composed original songs too for the serial. The Western part of our country has heavy usage of Dhol, Mridangam and I have used them in the serial also” said the music composer.
