Speaking of the ensemble cast, Gajraj said, "It was an amazing experience to collaborate with such talented actors, especially comedian Kumar Varun, who is quite popular in the comedy circuit. He is playing my Man Friday and is the narrator of the show."
Talking about shooting amid the pandemic, the veteran actor added, "The crew and technicians wear PPE suits, masks and shields; we have to deliver our dialogues without any protection. I recently shot two TV commercials. The set felt like an operation theatre."
