Deepika had previously opened up on essaying the role in an interview. Describing Romi Dev as "extremely refreshing, intelligent, knowledgeable, and funny," Deepika said, "Having a solid support system is important as it allows the person to work without holding back, without any kind of emotional burden. In that sense, Romi ji has played an extremely important part in Kapil Dev’s success.” She added Romi's presence in Dev's life has also kept him grounded.
