Earlier in an interview, Patel had said he had accidentally elbowed Swinton in the face while working on the film. "I accidentally elbowed Tilda in the mouth," had quoted Patel as saying.

"I was so nervous. It was my first scene with her. There's a whole thing where he is almost about to pass out and he's trying to find a couch to land on and I was spinning around and flailing and I kind of did like a UFC elbow. And Tilda just stopped and I thought, 'I just broke Tilda's teeth in the first scene'. And she was very gracious about it. All of her teeth are intact," he had added, recallin the incident that occurred during the shoot fo the film, which is brought to India by PVR Pictures.
