In the movie, the actress Mrunal Thakur is cast opposite to John and is playing the role of his wife Nandita, modeled on journalist Shobhna Yadav. During an interview, Nikhil said, “Sanjeev Kumar Yadav’s relationship with his wife Shobhna, a well-known news anchor in a Hindi news channel, is a significant part of the story so correct casting for this role was important. We were looking for someone who didn’t have a set image but at the same time was talented. Mrunal fit the bill. We start shooting from October 20, she joins us from November 1.”
