Sharing the picture, Raza wrote, "Stardust magazine came up with a novel idea for their annual issue. They wanted villains, romantically paired with heroines, which is very rare. Since Zeba Bakhtiyar, the leading lady of Henna and I became good friends during the shoot, she suggested my name for the photo shoot. They gave the option to all the heroines to select a villain for a romantic photo shoot, Zeba opted for me." Fans were happy to see the post and showered it with love. One of them wrote, "You are a gentleman with noble heart. " Another one commented, "Wow sir what a great Picture."
