When asked Angad playing Karl, he said, “To portray a real-life character is the toughest job for an actor because one never knows which direction to flow. Karl Jamshed Khandalavala has been the most challenging yet emotionally draining part I have ever played or prepped for. To internalise Karl I read up a lot on firstly the law set in the 1950s. Spent time on getting the body language correct. Speech used in court in that era was crystal clear so had to keep all that in mind while trying to memorise 6 to 8-page monologues.

The hand watch came in to play with a very stiff upper lip kind of arrogance”.This would be the first time Angad will be seen donning the cape of a lawyer onscreen.
