Arjun Kapoor confessed that he didn’t have to spend time training or in understanding the personality of his character, the Punjabi boy Krish Malhotra, since the character is like most boys his age.

“Krish is a modern Punjabi guy and does not have any accent in the film. From day one our director, Abhishek Verman, was very clear that he did not want Krish and Ananya to look caricaturish on screen. If you see them in a huge crowd of students, no one should be able to tell ki yeh Tamilian hain and woh ladka Punjabi hain,” said Kapoor.

For his character, the actor had to maintain the body language of a regular 20-something college guy and didn’t have to go through rigorous physical training either.

“Krish speaks in a low tone, since he is a soft spoken guy. There was nothing to play up the Punjabiness of the character, except in one part during a wedding, where I do a Punjabi dance number to cheer Ananya up. That’s when my true blue Punjabiyat comes out,” he added.
