On talking about the working experience with Sanjay Mishra and Raghav Juyal Ashish says, "It never felt like just working together, we had immense fun on the sets where we kept playing, experimenting, improvising scenes. Both the actors are masters in comic timings, which was very important in the case of this film. In fact, the whole ensemble, including Ram Kapoor, Abhishek, Nidhi Singh, Namit Das, Flora, Rohit Chowdhary, Bhupesh, Sharat, all were chosen for their timings, so that it becomes easy to improvise and play along".
