Expressing his happiness at Saif Ali Khan being in the film, Shahid Kapoor said: “I am happy Saif is doing this film. We shot for one and half days together. He is very professional. I don’t think anyone else could have played his role better than him. He is a great cast for the film. I would say the same for Kangana (Ranaut). She has been giving some outstanding performances and great to have her in the film as well.” (Read: Saif Ali Khan avoids Salman Khan at Stardust awards)
