Vikas Gupta on the success of the web-series said, “I am glad that both Rohan and Chetna agreed to do the show which was completely out of the box. Class of 2020 is a very edgy representation of the youth which is being liked by the audience and we are very happy about it. It is said that the Director is the captain of the ship and I found the right captain in Aarambhh M Sinha. The kind of hard work he has put into the show and the kind of aesthetics you see, it is because of him.”
Speaking about the series and his Delhi visit, Rohan Mehra quipped, “Coming back to Delhi feels so refreshing. I am glad that Class of 2020 gave me this opportunity to give the city another visit. In the web-series, the audience will see me in a completely new avatar as I am breaking my good-boy image which they know me for. I am playing the character of Ibrahim, a bad boy with a good heart. The show made us relive our school days all over again and I hope it will give you the same experience.”
Excited about the launch, Chetna Pande shares, “Being born and brought up in North India, coming to Delhi makes me feel closer to home. I always loved this city for its vibe and of course street food. After working so hard for the web-series for months, I think this visit came across as a treat. We all have been shooting for Class of 2020 from the past 6 months and it has finally all come together. I am playing the character of Priyanka in the show who is a studious girl. Shooting for the web-series brought back those exam horrors as I was petrified of appearing for exams and the pressure which comes with it. I hope we will be successful in entertaining you with our efforts and hard work.”
