Shreyas told Bollywood Hungama, "Nagesh Kukunoor said Naseer sir will join us in a few days, 'But see, he's a bit temperamental, if he gets angry, and you feel that you are not able to speak with him, then you don't worry, just come and tell me, and I will handle it'. I was a little nervous. Naseer ji came and we shot through the day. In the evening Naseer ji called me and asked if I had done theatre. He then said that it is seen in my acting. He said that he wants to tell me about Nagesh's temperament, if he gets upset and angry, I can come and tell him. He will handle it. I did not tell either of them about this till the shooting (for Iqbal) ended." Shreyas shared while speaking about their first day on the set of Iqbal.

Shreyas further shared his experience with Naseeruddin, and said, "I had a great time shooting with Naseer ji, we had breakfast together, we would play Scramble, watch films, he would take us out for dinners. I got to know him better, even post the shoot I used to meet him in Pune, when he was a guest lecturer at FTII (The Film and Television Institute of India)."

Iqbal was widely praised by critics, and well received by audiences. It even won Naseeruddin Shah the National Film Award for best supporting actor in 2007 along with the movie receiving National Film Award for best film on other social issues. Shreyas too won an award – Zee Cine Award for Best Actor Male. Speaking about Iqbal in a 2018 interview with Hindustan Times, Shreyas had said, "Life changed completely for me... Whatever I am today, is thanks to this film. It’s instrumental in getting me where I am.”

After appearing in TV soap operas like Woh on Zee TV and Damini on a Marathi channel, Shreyas Talpade did minor roles in Marathi films like Pachadlela and Savarkhed: Ek Garv. He then made his feature film debut as a lead in Nagesh Kukunoor's Iqbal. The actor will be next seen in Kangana Ranaut's Emergency.
