Talking about his pan-India project 'Satyanarayan Ki Katha' and collaborating with Kartik and Sajid Nadidawala, Sameer told SpotboyE, "I am nervous and anxious. I am also curious to know where the journey will take me. I have been working on the script of Satyanarayan  Ki Katha with my writer Karan Sharma for almost two years. When I narrated the script to Kartik Aaryan he was most excited. Then I narrated it to Sajid Nadidawala. He too loved it. It's very encouraging to see such huge commercial names being so passionate  about a different kind of love story."

In the interview, Sameer also divulged that 'Satyanarayan Ki Katha' is a love story and that they are still looking at casting the female lead and considering various names. "The  female lead is also very important. We are looking at various names," Sameer said. 

Earlier, in a statement, Kartik said, "I have been wanting to work with Sajid sir for some time now, I couldn’t have asked for better collaboration. I’m extremely happy that I am a part of Sajid Sir, Shareen and Kishor’s vision. 'Satyanarayan Ki Katha' is a musical love saga that brings together a powerhouse of people who are National award-winning names. It’s also a first for me with Sameer Vidwans sir who has an astute sense of making sensitive topics highly entertaining."
