Sharing the experience while making the film, the actor said, “Well, I was very glad that Harsh was making this film and he was making it the way he made it. I read the story, and I thought it was very sensitive and very well researched, and a kind of film I would love to watch, which is representing the people from the LGBTQIA community, and I just immediately said that it was a great story. Then we discussed dates and everything worked out for the better. And now when we saw the film, the kind of response and the love we received for the film, was overwhelming for us.”
Well, later when the actor was asked about his co-actor Bhumi, he stated, “Bhumi is a wonderful girl and she is one of my closest friends in the industry. She’s extremely talented, so I think it makes all her life easy. It’s good you have somebody so talented, so grounded on the same wavelength. So I think we had so much fun while playing these two characters, also keeping in mind what they go through, the emotional part of it. I think I really can’t imagine anyone else playing Sumi the way Bhumi has played it.”
