“It is dream star cast to work with and this is fact. I finalised each and every actor while writing the script. For instance, I knew that I wanted to talk with Annu-ji and Ravi for the roles they are playing in the movie. I forced my friend to call them to enquire about their dates.
“Also, I contacted Sanjay-ji’s brother to ask him to be a part of this film. He was in my mind from the time I started writing the script,” he added.
“Miss Tanakpur Haazir Ho” is set to release on Friday.
