Sonakshi Sinha was elated to hear the news of Badshah confirming to come on board. "When I was reading the script I could only see him playing the role of Gabru Ghaatak. I couldn't see anyone else because he did suit the role. He is a cool-dude, flamboyant, cool singer and the way he talks he is very similar to Badshah. I was hoping if he does this film, it will be good and later the producer said he is. I was happy about it,", said Sonakshi Sinha. 


Adding further about the experience working with the team, Badshah, said, "They did not allow me to go overboard, they rather asked me to stay natural. For all this, the credit goes to the entire team - Shilpi Ma'am (director), our producer Mrig Sir (Mrigdeep Singh Lamba) and the writer Gautam as it all starts with great writing in a comedy film." He thanked the entire team for helping him get right shots during the shoot of his part.
