Tripathi, who will be sharing screen space with the Irrfan for the first time, said it was one of the things on his wish list.

"My role is a cameo. It's my love and respect for Irrfan and my friendship with Dinu (Vijan) that made me say yes for it. I always wanted to work with Irrfan and when Dinu offered this role I immediately agreed to do this role even if it's just a cameo, to begin with," Tripathi said in a statement.
