Neil had earlier said that the role was challenging for him, especially due to the genre of the film and his character in it. "I had to undergo a drastic physical transformation. I had got in great shape for Saaho but for this role, I was required to gain weight. A wheelchair-bound man can’t have six-pack abs, we had to make it realistic. There was a lot of research that went into the equipment my character uses,” he said.
NNM Films and Madan Paliwal of MIRAJ will jointly produce Bypass Road.
