When asked about Irrfan’s role, the director says, “, “Irrfan plays a member of Saraswati Brass band that goes for weddings in Lucknow and he keeps on checking and wooing girls attending the wedding. People will see him in a light role after a long gap. I always had Irrfan in mind even while writing the script.”

Review: Paan Singh Tomar

Joining him in this rom-com will be Aditi Rao Hydari of London Paris New York. When asked about the unusual pairing Nair says, ““We were looking for a young girl to play a character of a street smart girl. Aditi suits the character perfectly. The pair would be one of the highlights of the film.”
