Meanwhile, in an interview with Zoom, Riteish Deshmukh revealed he signed up for Kakuda because he felt the script was interesting. the actor added that it is a horror comedy but not just restricted to scares and laughs. Deshmukh mentioned that Kakuda is a story that has a lot of heart and it is about the relationships between the characters.


The actor further dismissed reports of Kakuda mocking other horror comedies like Stree or any other film in the same genre. On a concluding note, he mentioned, "There is a dialogue in the film "Bhooton se dar nahi lagta insaan se lagta hai". That's not a dig at Dabangg or at Sonakshi’s line, but it's an ode to that film."
