The director, Amar Kaushik, confirmed the news and said, “For the part, I got Rajkumar (Rao) a sewing machine and we hired a tailor who would go to his house every day and teach him the ropes of the job. Tailoring is all about how fast you can pedal the machine. Raj practiced for 15-20 days and he would send me pictures of his progress. We also had workshops before taking the film on the floors, where all the actors, from Raj to Shraddha, gave inputs and offered improvisations.”
Kaushik refused to reveal much about Shraddha Kapoor’s character in order to keep the mystery around it intact. Kaushik said, “I was unsure if Shraddha (Kapoor) would agree to do the film since I am a debutant director but she loved the script. It’s her first comedy and she has a great sense of humour. The film required characters to converse in pure Hindi and Shraddha has excelled in that department as well.”
