Sapan told BuzzFeed India, "As a comedian, I go to a lot of colleges to perform and I see the lives of these students. There's so much pressure. And most of it comes from their family. Either financially, or because parents want them to do well."

Verma also told BuzzFeed that after uploading the video, a lot of students in Kota reached out to him, thanking him and telling him that they will be showing the video to their parents.

The video also features some of India's leading comedians, who also talk about their struggles with India's education system, and how it's not the end of the road.
