Seema said in a statement, "Mr. Kabaadi is a satirical comedy fare. I believe that comedy arises when thoughts and emotions that lay hidden in the subconscious are expressed consciously.

In this film, we have shown that when a 'kabaadiwala' or a scrap dealer becomes rich, how he flaunts his wealth...to be like other millionaires how he changes his wardrobe, trying a different accent and expanding his business."

"All the actors in the film are power performers. The film has shaped up quite well and it will be liked by the classes as well as the masses."

The cast also includes Sarika, Vinay Pathak, Rajveer Singh, Kashish Vora and Brijendra Kala. Om Puri, a Padma Shri awardee, died of a heart attack in January at his residence here. He was 66.
