Asked how it was to team up with Madhuri for the film, Sanjay told reporters, "It felt good to work together after a long time. I'll try to work more with her."

Originally, Sridevi was meant to do the film, before she passed away last February. The role eventually went to Madhuri.

When asked how it was to take up the role, Madhuri said, "When I was approached to do the role, I had a heavy by heart. She was a great artiste and a good human being. When you get a role, you do it your way. But, of course, we used to miss her everyday on set.

"Once you start work, you have to look beyond that and play your character to the best of your abilities.
