The actors speak at length about their reasons for choosing a film, their communication skills and their individual journeys in the industry.

Akshay Oberoi considers himself to be a "boring person" and does not take on a role with the thought of whether his audience will laud him for his on screen portrayal. For Oberoi, the script he chooses is a very personal and "selfish" decision. For Ragini Khanna on the other hand, the primary factor behind choosing a movie is the "director and the writer". Actor Pankaj Tripathi, prefers to think about the thought behind a script, and his own character. One of the reasons he took on Gurgaon was also because he had previously worked with the producer of the film, Ajay Rai, in Nil Battey Sannata.

The suspense thriller Gurgaon hit screens on 4 August.
