Hooda met the police officer before beginning work on the project. In an interview with Mid-day, the actor said: “For this project, I had to mirror Avinashji’s accent and dialect. So, I spent time with him. When we were shooting in Lucknow, he would be on the set every evening.”
Veteran actor Govind Namdev will play the role of Randeep’s onscreen father.
