The producer said there will be about six female characters in the film.

“We have just finalised Madhuri. Soumik had mentioned that he wants to cast Mahie Gill,Shilpa Shukla for other roles. But I don’t know if he has met them and things have been finalised or not. Also,we are looking for a female antagonist,” he said.
