Director Rajiv Dhingra said, "Kapil is a disciplined actor." He further added, "I wanted to show the pre-independence era in a lighter way."
The comedian-actor also opened up about his spat with his friend and colleague Sunil Grover that happened on a flight to Australia. He said, "I was upset. I had no fight with Sunil ever. I love him. I even texted Sunil and I wanted him to launch the trailer but he couldn't come as he's in Canada for his show."
