According to a report by Mumbai Mirror, Dutta has confirmed the development and said the crew just returned from the shoot schedule in Ranchi. "My role is very similar to Jayaji’s in Ramesh Sippy’s Sholay. We are currently taking a break but will resume in a month’s time," says Dutta.

It was reported earlier that Rampal has been busy shooting for this film recently. The Mumbai Mirror report further adds that the shooting for the film commenced during November 2017, pretty much at the same time Rampal finished shooting for JP Dutta's Paltan.

Nastik is directed by Shailesh Varma and stars Hate Story 4 actress Ihana Dhillon and Bajrangi Bhaijaan child actor Harshaali Malhotra. It is also speculated that Amitabh Bachchan might make a cameo in the film, as reported by Mumbai Mirror.
