In an interview with Pinkvilla, Aasif revealed that he shares a special bond with the entire cast of the film. He said, "During our Kakuda shoot in 2021, I was quite nervous in the first 4 to 5 days. Riteish sir, Sonakshi, and Saqib Saleem might have known each other. After each shot, everyone used to sit behind the monitor. But I used to wonder what should I talk about?"

He further added that he did not have much to talk about as Sonakshi, Riteish, and Saqib used to talk about their work experiences. However, when they started shooting outdoors, he said that they became friends naturally.

Asif also revealed that he refers to Sonakshi as his sister. He shared a small incident about how this happened and said that during Raksha Bandhan when Sona couldn't go home, he could sense the sadness on her face so he wrote a poem for her on Rakhi and sent it to her. He then revealed, "So, she texted me asking where I was. I told her I was in my room. She said come quickly. So, when I went, she had kept the Rakhi prepared and that is how we became brother and sister.”
