Grewal said, “As storytellers, we all yearn to go beyond the obvious, get actors to play parts which they have never played before. With Tamannaah, I did just that. As far as casting Tamannaah and Abhishek Banerjee, It was pretty straight forward; I met them, they loved the material and they were on. Tamannaah has done such glamorous roles in big films with big stars but here I have presented Tamannaah very differently with a character that goes against the grain of what she has typically done in the past.”

“All in all, she is a wonderful performer who surrenders to the character she is playing. And Abhishek banerjee… What a talent! I had been seeing his work and wanted to work with him. When we finished writing the show, we instinctively felt Abhishek would be perfect for this, and he was,” Grewal added.
