Ananya Panday said that she has always wanted to work with Vikramaditya Motwane, and that she feels lucky she gets to work with him so early on in her career. “When Vikramaditya Motwane approached me with this story, I just knew I had to be part of it. As a filmmaker, he has been on my wish list for as long as I can remember and I feel really lucky to be working with him this early in my career,” said Ananya.
Speaking about the project, Vikramaditya Motwane said, “This is a thriller with modern-day appeal and very relevant to our times. It’s going to be really interesting to see Ananya Panday in this role since it’s something she hasn’t attempted before.”
Adds producer Nikhil Dwivedi, "When Vikram shared the script with me to produce, it was one of the most interesting material I had laid my hands on in recent times and I decided within a few hours to participate in this. Ananya is a commendable artist and someone to watch out for in times to come. I am excited that she is in the film."
