VSK Bharath has also released a note in regards to the serial. It says, "There are numerous helping hands performing social work for various Sewa Sansthas. Some people’s goals aren’t limited to just making money and gaining fame and fortune, rather they perform selfless social work to become the reason for someone’s joy. Such people find satisfaction in the happiness of others. They inspire others by engaging in social work tirelessly. This tradition of selfless service has always been a part of our Indian culture, ‘Samarpan’ serial highlights such noble work and is a medium to spread awareness of the Sansthas in society."
The makers of the TV series have said that they encountered numerous helping hands while working on this philanthropic project. This project will seek to bring the thankless task undertaken by these Sansthas into public eye. This effort will also achieve another important objective where common viewers who wish to contribute to social causes, but are unaware of the opportunities to do so can be brought closer to such Sansthas, they said in the note.
