During the conversation, Adarsh was asked about the audition process. He revealed that his agents brought this role for him and asked his thoughts on the episode. After reading the script, he realized how well-written his character was. He said, "The smallest of the sentences he speaks or the smallest of dialogues that are written or even the silence about matters that are discussed, they tell you so much about his life. I think that is good writing." 

He further discussed his first reaction after finishing the script. He said, "I was like, Wow! It was a well-written script and I wanted to be a part of it." Adarsh plays a role of a driver in the series. He revealed that he received an offer because the makers watched The White Tiger. He said, "They thought I could do something like this. So yeah, I never actually auditioned for the role. They were kind enough to place their trust in me." 

The actor also shared details about how the whole episode was shot during the pandemic. He also had to visit America in the middle of the pandemic without Visa and it was invite-based. The White Tiger actor revealed he has never been to the States before. He said, "The journey to America was a full-on adventure".
