The veteran actor Gulshan Grover in a chat with mid-day said that initially he was not inclined to telling it all in a book "as it is a big responsibility and you should not hurt anyone, especially those who are not alive to defend themselves."
Gulshan Grover's reluctance gave way "after meeting the publishers. It was a wonderful experience to meet the Penguin team. I was happy to revisit my life." Grover has been involved with "every dot and comma in the book".

Gulshan Grover further said, "I had to read, correct, make changes and send it again, all in time to meet deadlines." He has dedicated the biography to filmmaker-son Sanjay, who he refers to as "my life." Grover has been a single parent and he says the book will chronicle his personal and professional life. "But I have not made any irresponsible statements."

The title for the book was an easy decision. Gulshan Grover said, "Ever since Subhash Ghai's Ram Lakhan , in which I mouthed [the words] Bad Man, it has stuck with me." While shooting for Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi, Grover spoke about the book's title to co-star Akshay Kumar. "He told me I should copyright it, like he has done for Khiladi."

Gulshan Grover, who has been in the industry for almost four decades, hopes the book proves to be an inspiration for people to chase their dreams. "I am the first commercial actor who crossed into Hollywood long before Irrfan, Anupam Kher and Priyanka Chopra did."
