In a past interview to IMDb, Suniel Shetty shared some anecdotes from the film. He had said, “I don’t know how the film was made, it just happened. We arrived on the sets every morning, the costumes were basically just stretched and given to us, not even ironed." He also revealed that the director made them sleep on newspaper for noon naps. Suniel further added that it was Priyadarshan's (the director) idea to ensure that the actors look and stay uncomfortable to do justice to the role. Hence there was no makeup as well. On how the film became such a cult, Suniel also shared that Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and him would be constantly together, rehearsing their scenes for hours on end and improvising on the go. "Priyan sir is one man who knows when to say cut,” he had added.
