Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who returns to acting as a corrupt cop in the self-coproduced digital film "Ghoomketu", says he really hates acting but he had no choice but to say yes to the project. Anurag said: "I had no choice but to say yes. I really do hate acting but it's always the emotional blackmail that works. Also the desire to be with Nawaz on-screen and Pushpi (writer-director Pushpendra Nath Misra) and his narration. And to be in the same film as Raghubir Yadav, Ila Arun and Swanand (Kirkire)... wait till you see them on screen." Ghoomketu Movie Review: Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s Meta Comedy Is Clunky and Totally Off the Mark!
