"On the sets of the film, Mr. Oberoi's transformation was so complete that he behaved like the character even when the camera was not on. So startling and complete was his physical and emotional transformation that members of the unit were taken aback." the source added.
Speaking how Vivek aptly fit the role, producer Sandip Ssingh said, "I wanted a versatile actor to play this role, Vivek made an unconventional debut with Company and also gave Saathiya in the same year. I wanted the actor to give me one year of his life before the shoot begins because the films range from the year 1957 to 2019 in order to understand the journey. Vivek gave 15 look tests that needed 7-8 hours of make up each day. When an actor shows such dedication for the film, the filmmaker and the whole crew were extremely enthusiastic and encouraged to make the film."
Apart from Vivek, the film features actors Boman Irani, Manoj Joshi, Prashant Narayanan, Zarina Wahab, Barkha Sengupta, Anjan Shrivastav, Yatin Karyekar, Rajendra Gupta, Akshat R Saluja,Jimesh Patel and Darshan Kumaar in important roles.
