Before the show began, actor Kartik Aaryan gave everyone a dose of humor by posting a picture with Ranveer. The actors recreated an iconic pose from Kartik's latest release Love Aaj Kal. Kartik captioned "Announcing #LoveAajKal 2030. With @ranveersingh (sic)." When Kartik's on-screen love interest Sara Ali Khan suggested he found a replacement soon, the actor said Ranveer came entirely (referring to a dialog).
