Kumarji and his son Abhishek got us the script of this film and my team and I was in splits with what we heard. Plus the entire team right from director Anees to actors Anilji, John and Ileana we have worked with. Anees directed one of our biggest hit Ready, John and we have collaborated before and now doing several films together. And I have always liked the way Arshad has left us in a split with his comic timings. We are happy to have Pulkit Samrat and Kriti Kharbanda on board too. The characters are written are so hilarious that you are laughing throughout."
