After clearing three rounds of auditions, the top five shortlisted actors got to meet Ken sir!

Mridul further spoke about the grueling casting process. He said, “The makers were auditioning for the character of Farooq for almost 3-4 months and must have auditioned at least 150 to 200 actors. Despite the fact that many actors were shortlisted but still, the perfect one was not finalized for Farooq. At that time I was doing 'Kasautii Zindagii Kay' and as I was under contract with them I wasn't able to audition for any other project. Unfortunately, some actors from the show got contracted Covid, and therefore, the show was abruptly stopped. And so, I got a chance to audition. By the time I went for the audition it was already late, however, they allowed me to give one."
