Chhabra said he never imagined he would release the film without Rajput: “Sushant was not just the hero of my debut film as a director, but he was a dear friend who stood by me through thick and thin. We had been close right from ‘Kai Po Che!’ to ‘Dil Bechara’ He had promised me that he would be in my first film.”

“So many plans were made together, so many dreams were dreamt together but never once did I ever imagine that I would be left alone to release this film. He always showered immense love on me while I was making it and his love will guide us as we release it,” the director said.

The music of the film has been composed by AR Rahman and the lyrics are by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
