Mishra revealed, "Anurag is like my younger brother. I can convey to him easily if something isn't working out, and he understands it. We get along really well. A director listens to the other director if they acted in their film. We both had a lot of fun on the sets. He is from the Indian heartland and a great actor. It's a cameo but his part is in the beginning and the end of the film which resonates. It was a great idea to have him."
