Rumi Jaffrey said, 'Everything was decided. Music was final. When the lockdown was imposed, Sushant was a bit upset. About the shooting of this film. We were all optimistic that things would be back to normal soon but then this lockdown kept on increasing. When things kept getting delayed, Sushant had said that we should prepare some other short script which requires fewer people to shoot and it should be a low-budget film, something like Rajesh Khanna starrer Ittefaq. We were just looking for a film story for this. These things were going on since May.

Rumi Jaffery said, "Sushant was a lively person and he had a child in him. He used to hug and love me many times. Our relationship was very strong. It was more than an actor-director."
