In an earlier interview to Hindustan Times, Modi revealed that it was the autobiographies of Charlie Chaplin and Kirk Douglas that motivated him during his difficult days and made him realise that he would like to pen his journey later. "I always wanted to write a book which will have an inspirational angle, and won't just be about my life. I remember when I was a struggling actor in Mumbai, what kept me going were the autobiographies of people like Charlie Chaplin and Kirk Douglas, among others. So, I thought it's very important to write about my life, what made me who I am, so that people who look for inspiration should benefit from it. It's not preachy but inspiring. If I am not proud of the way I have lived my life, then how can anybody else be proud of it?" said Kher.

On the work front, Kher was last seen in the films One Day and The Accidental Prime Minister, both of which tanked at the box office.
