"In the West, artists first voice for their characters and based on that, the film is shot using graphics. But over here, we have to talk according to the graphics," Sharma said in a statement. Speaking about his character, the comedian said that Red is the hero but tends to get entangled in tough situations. Sharma also said that the audience will not be disappointed as Red is funny just like him.
