Vicky said watching Dharmendra back on the screen was his favourite part of the show. "It was so lovely, he is just a legend, he is evergreen," he said about the scene in which Dharmendra had a cameo as Sheikh Salim Chishti. Also calling Naseeruddin Shah a legend, he said, “he is a chalta firta masterclass in acting (he is a moving master class in acting).”

Praising Aditi Rao Hydari, who played Anarkali, Vicky said, “She is looking beautiful and just a masterstroke in casting.” He added, "in fact, the three warring brothers, Shubham, Taha and Aashim are absolute stars. So good." The actor said he is going back to watching the second episode about the battle of Kabul again and added that he was waiting for the second season.

The Hindustan Times review of the film read: “Taj-Divided By Blood, directed by Ronald Scalpello, attempts to tackle a lot of history and present it in a new manner, but the overall effort feels a bit tame and underwhelming. If it was aiming to be the desi version of Games of Thrones, it's quite subdued, both in scale and execution.”
