After having wrapped the Varanasi schedule, the team has now started shooting in Mumbai. Talking to about his film, Jitendra Kumar said that it has been an amazing experience so far. He said that there is good energy on the sets and great relationships are being formed. Kumar plays a gay character that falls in love with Ayushmann’s character in the film. He said that each character in the film is significant and that there is no second lead.
He said that the filmmakers noticed him because of his work on TVF shows and said that his character is no different from what he has done before. The actor added that he was initially apprehensive as he feared to repeat himself. However, Kumar said that was not the case as the emotions of the characters are very different from him.
