The Golmaal actor also added that he was aware that his decision would break many cultural norms at so many different levels. Reflecting on his decision, Tusshar said:

"There were lots of questions that came to my mind as well. For example, if people will accept it positively? Will there be too much of a shock? Will there be a backlash in the media because I was breaking cultural norms? The book sheds light on all these queries and also chronicles how I decided to take the plunge and eventually found my true inner calling."
