Speaking about the forthcoming short film, Kumra said, "It was an interesting concept, something that I had not come across before. I was very well-aware of the subject the film deals with but I think the way it has been written has been pretty fantastic. It also, in a way, blew my mind when I read it at one go. The minute I finished reading it I said a yes to it." Kumra added, "Secondly, I found out that Mr. Kher is also part of the film and would be opposite me, which I thought was very interesting and more like a cherry on the top. I had worked with him earlier on 'The Accidental Prime Minister' and I absolutely love working with him. Anupam Kher Showcases Toned Upper Body, Asks Fans ‘Sahi Ja Raha Hu Na’.
